Episode 4: Mark 3
The Gospel of Mark challenges the expected ideal of the Messiah—not a conquering king or a wish-granting genie, but rather a man of sorrows and a suffering servant. This short yet impactful account of Jesus’ life reveals the character of the One who came to save us. Jesus was not what they were expecting; He was better.
In this session, Erin Warren teaches through Mark 3. Mark continues to show Jesus’ authority as He restores the crippled hand of a man on the Sabbath day. The crowds continue to press in. Jesus calls twelve men to be His apostles on a mountaintop, and we have our first Markan sandwich! This structure reiterates why Jesus came: to bind Satan and rescue the captives, restoring all who believe to a right relationship with their Father in the family of God.
