Pastor Floyd Stanfill continues his sermon from the Gospel of Mark – Chapter 12.
Jesus’ time in Jerusalem is short, but in the twelfth chapter of Mark’s gospel he has time to deliver a few lessons. Jesus tells a parable which appears designed to condemn the Temple authorities and predict an end to the Jews’ place as God’s chosen people, explains what the greatest commandment is, and explains the importance of sacrificing for God.
Pastor Floyd Stanfill continues his sermon from the Gospel of Mark – Chapter 11.After much traveling, Jesus arrives at Jerusalem. Mark structures the Jerusalem narrative carefully, giving Jesus three days before the passion events and three days before his crucifixion and burial. The entire time is filled with parables about his mission and symbolic actions referring to his identity.
