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

Jun 14 Who Do You Say That I Am? / Mark 8:1-33

Jerrod Rumley

After lecturing and training His disciples, Jesus has given them multiple lab settings to follow Him. In this message, Jesus asks the most important question the disciples could ever answer and quite possibly the most important question you could ever answer. “Who do you say that I am?” It’s a… More

May 31 The Gospel vs. Religion / Mark 7:1-37

Shea Sumlin

Out of all the enemies and challenges Jesus has faced thus far in Mark's Gospel, probably the greatest one is that of religion: man's attempt to justify or sanctify himself before God through his own human effort or external means – apart from Christ. In this passage, Jesus will confront religion… More

May 24 Sufficient in Christ / Mark 6:1-56

Shea Sumlin

Two of the most well known miracles in the Bible are “The Feeding of the 5,000” and “Jesus Walking on Water.” Both the churched and unchurched alike are generally aware of these two particular miracles. Yet for many, our understanding doesn't go much further than the flannelgraph pictures in our… More

May 17 Trusting His Authority / Mark 5:1-43

PJ Lewis

In Mark 5, Jesus continues to show His disciples what it means to follow the servant. We see three instances where Jesus demonstrates the power and authority given to Him from the Father. He reminds the disciples what it means to be available to serve anyone, anywhere at anytime. He also shows His… More
