Aug 23 Jesus and the Jewish Council / Mark 14:43-15:15

Jerrod Rumley

This passage portrays the betrayal, arrest and trial of Jesus, and finishes with Peter’s denial. Judas was commissioned to betray Him, and even His closest of disciples reject knowing Him at the eleventh hour. The implications for us are many. One, we need to always be mindful of who we do community… More

Aug 16 Not My Will / Mark 14:32-42

PJ Lewis

As the time for the sacrifice draws closer, we find Jesus struggling. This is an almost unbelievable passage that shows a time when Jesus and the Father’s wills were not identical. But this is where we get so much insight into how Jesus operated, as He was able to navigate through this time, showing… More

Aug 9 Remembering Redemption / Mark 14:12-31

Shea Sumlin

On the night Jesus was betrayed, shortly before His arrest, trials and execution on the cross, He shares the Passover meal with His disciples. Jews had shared this meal every year for the previous 1500 years, celebrating God’s incredible deliverance from their bondage of slavery under the Egyptians… More

Aug 2 Extravagant Worship / Mark 14:1-11

Mike Slayden

Just days before the crucifixion, Mark takes us to an intimate dinner scene in Bethany with Jesus and His closest friends. In the midst of dinner, Mary, sister of Lazarus, becomes overwhelmed by the thought of the coming death of Christ. What she does next demonstrates one of the greatest acts of… More

Jul 26 Things to Come / Mark 13:1-37

Shea Sumlin

In this passage, Jesus begins teaching and preparing His disciples concerning future events (both near and distant) that will occur. Some of these events are painful realities, such as the destruction of the nation of Israel, its temple, false witnesses against the church and immense persecution on… More

Jul 19 A Question of Authority / Mark 11:27-12:44

Mike Slayden

Where did Jesus receive His authority? After craftily backing the religious leaders into a proverbial corner, Jesus refuses to answer their question. On the heels of this iteration, Jesus then demonstrates that His civil, theological and moral authority all come from the fact that He is Lord and… More

Jul 12 Making Room for Jesus / Mark 11:1-26

Jerrod Rumley

Jesus begins the Passion Week with the most remarkable of entrances. Everything He does is intentional and focused. During this time, He makes some strong accusations toward the religious people and the temple crowd, and He uses Old Testament Messianic prophesies, big time illustrations, and a… More

Jul 5 The Great Reversal / Mark 10:13-52

Mike Slayden

In a world where rulers use their subjects as stepping stones to personal success and greatness, Jesus has something else to say. Leadership at its core is not about greatness, but about humility. It’s not about the exaltation of self, but of others. As we investigate the theme verse of the book of… More

Jun 28 The Meaning of Marriage / Mark 10:1-12

Shea Sumlin

Debates on the definition and meaning of marriage and divorce were just as heated in Jesus’ day as they are now. There were many divisions over what grounds were permissible for divorce and what grounds were not. In this passage, the Pharisees seek to trap Jesus on his view of divorce, hoping to… More

Jun 21 The Cost of Following the Servant / Mark 8:34-9:50

PJ Lewis

After letting His disciples know what it will cost Him to bring us salvation, Jesus teaches us what it will cost us to follow Him. And we find that it costs us what it costs Jesus: our life. Following Jesus is not just believing things about Jesus. It is believing in Jesus, and that changes… More
