with No Comments

Pastor Craig Davis continues his series in Mark with another of the “sandwich” passages wherein Mark takes a moment to interrupt the story with what may strike us as an unrelated tangent but is actually the true heart of the message.

Pastor Craig Davis continues his series in Mark with exposition of two familiar-yet-oft-overlooked parables.
