The Words and Works Jesus

According to the Gospel of St Mark

mark 1 29
Mark 1:29

How is this section a good follow-up to Jesus’ teaching in the synagogue?

It gives us the results of his preaching

mark 1 30
Mark 1:30

“Peter’s mother-in-law” Significance? (cf. 1 Corinthians 9:5; hint: Roman Catholics)

1 Corinthians 9:5 Don’t we have the right to take a believing wife along with us, as do the other apostles and the Lord’s brothers and Cephas?

Peter was married, unlike the other “popes”

mark 1 31
Mark 1:31

“began to wait on them” Significance?

Full recovery

mark 1 32 33
Mark 1:32-33

Why would this be a natural reaction to what Jesus was doing?

Word and fame was spreading; this was unlike any other person around

mark 1 34
Mark 1:34

Why did Jesus not want the demons to talk?

Unlikely and unwanted testimonies

“They knew who he was.” What does this tell us about the demons? (Luke 4:41)

Luke 4:41 Moreover, demons came out of the many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak because they knew he was the Christ.

They knew even better than the people who Jesus was

mark 1 35
Mark 1:35

Why did Jesus pray?

He was starting his earthly ministry

Shows he is true man

Being our Savior was hard work!

Shows importance of prayer in our lives

mark 1 36
Mark 1:36

Compare this verse and Luke 4:42. Compare whom Mark and Luke say were pursuing Jesus. How might the reader properly account for this difference?

Luke 4:42 At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them.

“Simon and his companions” and “the people” all together went to find Jesus

mark 1 38
Mark 1:38

What does this verse tell us about Jesus’ mission on earth?

To preach more than do miracles

The people were finding him because he had done miracles

mark 1 39
Mark 1:39

“driving out demons.” Why does Mark stress this?

One of the things Jesus did; it shows his power over the devil

mark 1 40
Mark 1:40

Describe leprosy and its effect on the human body.

Aka Hansen’s disease:skin sores, nerve damage, muscle damage, disfigurement

Greek word = bad skin disease

“If you are willing.” What is the man saying about Jesus?

He knows Jesus can do this, but does not force it; he is willing to live with a yes or no answer

mark 1 41
Mark 1:41

“Touched the man.” This is contrary to God’s command in the Mosaic Law (Leviticus 13:44; 22:4). Yet Jesus is not guilty of breaking the law, since this is an example of the “higher law of love” taking precedence over the ceremonial law. Prove this is true. (Romans 13:10)

romans 13 10
Romans 13:10

Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

mark 1 411
Mark 1:41

“Touched the man.” This is contrary to God’s command in the Mosaic Law (Leviticus 13:44; 22:4). Yet Jesus is not guilty of breaking the law, since this is an example of the “higher law of love” taking precedence over the ceremonial law. Prove this is true. (Romans 13:10)

Love is the fulfillment of the law and he was going to make him clean again with this miracle

mark 1 43
Mark 1:43

“with a strong warning.” Why this emotion on Jesus’ part?

He really did not want this to get out; he was going around to preach around the Galilee region

mark 1 44
Mark 1:44

“Show yourself to the priest etc.” Use Leviticus 13:43-46 and 14:1-32 to explain these two commands.

leviticus 13 45 46
Leviticus 13:45-46

13:45-46 The person with such an infectious disease must wear torn clothes, let his hair be unkept, cover the lower part of his face and cry out, “Unclean! Unclean!” As long as he has the infection he remains unclean. He must live alone he must live outside the camp.

leviticus 14 10
Leviticus 14:10

On the eighth day he must bring two male lambs and one ewe lamb a year old, each without defect, along with three-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, and one log of oil.

mark 1 441
Mark 1:44

“Show yourself to the priest etc.” Use Leviticus 13:43-46 and 14:1-32 to explain these two commands.

The priest had to check if the person was really clean

He had to offer sacrifices after he was clean

mark 1 442
Mark 1:44

“As a testimony to them.” Who is meant by “them”? (the people in general or the priests?)

Both priest and people, so all could see he is clean

What is meant by “testimony” then?

Witness, sign

mark 1 45
Mark 1:45

Why does Jesus tell him not to tell anyone?

Jesus knew this would interfere with his earthly ministry

What are the results of the man telling everybody instead of being quiet?

Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere

mark 1 451
Mark 1:45

How did Jesus take a risk in healing this man?

Jesus knew what the man would do, but still healed him

How is that a similar risk he takes with us as well?

Jesus always run the risk of people loving the gift more than the Giver

conclusion
Conclusion

What are some of the things Jesus did to show he was true God?

Heals Peter’s mother-in-law, other people, a leper, preaches, drives out demons

What were some of the reactions to these displays of power?

Wanted the see him more and more, but for his miracles, not necessarily his words
