Passage: Mark 6:1-6
Series: Mark
Duration: 18 mins 17 secs
We will move into the first few verses of Mark 6 this week. Jesus returns home to Nazareth and things do not go well. Good background for thoughts about welcoming or rejecting our Lord before we go to his table.

Passage: Mark 5:1-20
Series: Mark
Duration: 27 mins 21 secs
We move into Mark 5 this week but continue the miracle stories Mark gathers together. After the storm at sea Jesus and company land and seem to meet up with a very small zombie apocalypse. A short story with tension, confrontations, demons, drowning pigs, and possibly multiple applications. We will try to settle on one - ok maybe two - for this Sunday.

Passage: Mark 4:35-41
Series: Mark
Duration: 21 mins 41 secs
This week we finish up Mark 4. This really should be the beginning of chapter 5 as Mark moves from parables to miracles. Remember verse and chapter divisions are not inspired and the old joke was that they must have been done by a Methodist circuit rider on his horse between preaching assignments! Anyway, this week we try to understand some of the importance of Jesus stopping a storm at sea.

Passage: Mark 4:26-34
Series: Mark
Duration: 27 mins 39 secs
As we move forward a few verses in Mark we come to the two last parables of the Kingdom in this set. Both are also about seed growing into something great. Both are also a bit tricky to understand but worth the effort. Jesus spoke "as they were ready to hear." May we be ready to hear.

Passage: Mark 4:1-20
Series: Mark
Duration: 25 mins 22 secs
Mark 4 begins with the well-known parable of The Sower. Also known as the parable of the Seed or the Soils and we will see why all three elements are important. There is also the matter of Jesus' interpretation of the parable and his explanation about why he teaches in that form at all. All material that has generated endless discussions over the years.

Passage: Mark 3:20-35
Series: Mark
Duration: 23 mins 37 secs
The latter part of Mark 3 has an interesting form. It begins and ends with Jesus' family and in between is further conflict with the scribes. His family fear he is "beside himself", the scribes come as an investigating committee but come with minds already made up. They believe he is operating as an agent of Satan. Jesus corrects both groups in ways that were shocking then and instructive now. Should give us some important things to think about.

Passage: Mark 2:18-22
Series: Mark
Duration: 24 mins 42 secs
We are continuing in Mark 2. Again this week only looking at a few verses. Jesus is asked why he and his disciples are not fasting. He answers with three pictures, each quite intriguing and instructive. I believe some of the instruction is especially useful in such a time as this.
