Mark’s Gospel, the first to be written, emphasizes the certainty that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the fulfillment of God’s purpose. In the pages of Mark’s account, we come to know Him as the Messiah, the Suffering Servant, the Son of God, the Risen Christ, and the Returning King. With nearly a third of the narrative dedicated to the passion and the resurrection of Jesus, the Gospel of Mark aims to persuade all who read to believe.
As Alistair Begg takes us through Mark 6 and 7, we see Jesus demonstrating His divine nature, calling stubborn people to faith and repentance. These accounts illustrate that the depravity of the human heart is the same today as it was when Jesus walked the earth. Some people are simply indifferent toward the Gospel, others are beguiled by their own lust, and still others place their confidence in religious externalism. Despite all of our contemptible ways, we who trust in Christ like a child will be healed, guided, and kept by the great Shepherd of our souls.
