THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK | CONTROVERSIAL KING
JOIN US FOR A 5-WEEK ADVENT SERIES, LEADING UP TO OUR CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION AS WE CONTINUE STUDYING THE BOOK OF MARK AND SEE JESUS AS THE CONTROVERSIAL KING!
The gospel according to Mark declares that God’s ultimate answer to the human condition is not a set of principles, wise philosophy, or religious traditions. His answer is not even found in a moral code or a set of rules to live by. Instead, Mark boldly declares that God’s ultimate answer to all things is God Himself.
Throughout this series, we will witness God revealing Himself in Christ Jesus as nothing less than the King of all Creation, and we will see that this King is quite controversial. Throughout these five controversy narratives found in Mark chapters 2-3, we will watch Jesus stand toe-to-toe with all those who have ideas, ideals, or agendas that differ from God's mission and God's agenda. King Jesus is a on mission to seek after and save the lost, and therefore, will not let anything or anyone be a hindrance, distraction, or obstacle to His loving grace and mercy.
The Controversial King will challenge your ideas, your traditions, and your preconceived notions about God Himself and call you to place your faith in Him. In fact, Jesus desires for all of us to know who God is and, in that, to know that all broken and sinful people can be rescued to enjoy an intimate relationship with Him. And no one will stop the King of Glory doing just that!
We hope you join us for this series and our prayer is that you might embrace and submit to the One, True King: JESUS CHRIST!
