A Ransom For Many

From Series: The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 5

Mark 10:45  (ID: 2828)

The contrast between the attitude of James and John and that of Jesus, as recorded in Mark 10, could not be more striking. The disciples showed an attitude of selfish ambition that desired status and honor, while Jesus displayed a humble attitude of service. Alistair Begg teaches us that it will take a decisive, costly sacrifice - a ransom - to set us free from self-centeredness: the atoning sacrifice Christ made on the cross.


45For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
