As Jesus and His disciples proceed to Jerusalem, some contention breaks out when James and John make a special, if selfish, request of Jesus. This episode is not without Gospel implications, as Pastor Craig Davis shows us in this first of three sermons on this passage.
Pastor Craig Davis continues through the gospel of Mark as Jesus and his disciples continue their journey to Jerusalem.
In his Gospel, Mark follows up Jesus’ interaction with the “rich young ruler” to report a statement from Peter observing that he and the other disciples have left everything to follow Christ. Is it enough? Jesus answers the question, and from that answer Pastor Craig Davis proclaims good and hard news about the Gospel.
Pastor Craig Davis returns to the gospel of Mark, where Jesus foretells His death and resurrection for a second time to an uncomprehending set of pupils.
Pastor Craig Davis brings us the Word of God from the Gospel of Mark, where Jesus follows up the episode of the rich young ruler with some startling declarations about how one gains entrance to the Kingdom of God.
Jesus answers the rich young ruler’s question, a question pertinent to us all: What must I do to be saved? Is there anything I can do to be saved?
Is Jesus God, or only a teacher? Jesus responds to a rich young ruler by starting off in a possibly unexpected direction.
What kind of kingdom is God’s kingdom? Pastor Davis addresses this question via his exposition of a familiar passage, while pointing us to an interpretation that may not be as familiar.
Does Jesus have the right to rule, and even make legal rulings, on questions like divorce? And if he does, how might that affect your life?
What kind of authority does Jesus have? Can he make new rulings on existing rules? Can he make new rules? Pastor Davis begins a two-part series examining the authority of Jesus as displayed in an encounter with the Pharisees.
