Chapter 11 - Snapshots of Jesus as Seen Through the Gospels; Gospel of Mark - Mark Lanier

Snapshots of Jesus from Matthew. Today’s lesson focused on Matthew 15. Mark uses a boxing match to illustrate the lesson.

Round 1. Pharisees and the scribes vs the disciples not washing their hands before eating.

Jesus comments on what God says vs what the elders say and called them hypocrites.

Round 2. The Canaanite woman who demonstrated great faith in asking Jesus to heal her daughter.

Listen to Mark discuss how the cross of Christ is a stumbling block for unbelievers and questions to ponder: Why do I come to Jesus? How am I doing on hypocrisy? What is coming out of my heart and mind? How am I handling God’s tests?
