Jesus and Desperate Lepers

Gospel of Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Gospel of Mark

Today we are wrapping up the first chapter with what is possibly the most moving story in Mark, outside the cross. In Mark 1:40-45, Jesus heals a leper. Now to grasp what Mark is doing by placing this story here we need to understand that Jesus doesn’t heal for the sake of healing. Yes, his healing demonstrates his power. Yes, his healing authenticates his message. Yes, his healing points to the perfect world to come. But, his healing is also a visual of why he came. Today, more than a healing, we get a vivid picture of who we are, who Jesus is and what he came to do. In this passage we see that our need is great, but his provision is greater.

The Character of the King

Gospel of Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Gospel of Mark

One of the over-arching themes of Mark’s gospel is that everywhere Jesus went, things got better – the blind receive sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised and more. Just imagine what it would have been like to witness this life. What would a day in the life of Jesus look like? What did he do? Where did he go? How did people respond to him? Mark gives us an opportunity to do just that today, in 1:21-39, where we have a 24 hour window with Jesus where we get a massive demonstration of the character of the King and the Kingdom.

The Beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Gospel of Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Gospel of Mark

Nearly 2,000 years ago, in a small rural province of Roman-ruled Israel, there was a man who claimed to not only be a king, but the King; not only one sent from God, but the Son of God. His name was Jesus. In dramatic detail, the Gospel of Mark tells the riveting story of Jesus’ brief years of ministry in sixteen short, action-packed chapters. Mark, an assistant to the apostle Peter, is a masterful story-teller. Using a style of writing that is simple and original he recounts the life, death and resurrection of Jesus; events which form the very center of cosmic and human history. Over the near we will be exploring the life and work of the One who fulfilled all the Old Testament hopes for the coming Christ, the Messiah, and see first-hand how only his story makes sense of our own.
