Drawing Lines

Sermon Series: The King of God's Kingdom

March 31, 2019

Bible Text: Mark 4:1-20 |

Series:

Religion can be a very polarising subject. The charge is often leveled that specific religions divide between who's in and who's out according to their doctrine or practices. Rather than producing peace and social harmony religion is then seen as a source of conflict. In Mark 4 we encounter Jesus drawing lines between different types of people. How do we make sense of this potentially polarising action on his behalf. Listen in as we explore the line that Jesus draws through the human race and how we might think about that in our contemporary culture.

Bible Text: Mark 2:23-3:6 |

Series:

Do you know how to rest truly? Do you know what it means to rest from the work underneath the work? There's a place in Mark's Gospel where, on two occasions, Jesus challenges the religious leaders of his day concerning the Old Testament teaching of the Sabbath. By closely observing this interaction we don't just learn a theology of Sabbath but we actually see how Jesus himself brings us the deepest rest we'll ever need.
