Jon & Dr Stephen discuss: feeding the 5000, how the disciples missed a trick, the 2 cultural contexts of Mark, the ‘Messianic secret’, Jesus walking on the water and looking like a phantom, hardness of heart, and not trusting God’s provision. Mark 6:30-56
Jon & Dr Stephen discuss: the gathering clouds, Jesus causing offence in his hometown, revisiting offence vs faith, sending the Twelve and the picture of discipleship, having ‘just enough’, challenging the self-fulfillment and self-reliant culture of our day, Herod beheading John the Baptist and the use of power, and not clutching tightly to what is rightfully yours. Mark 6:1-29
Jon & Dr Stephen discuss: Jesus sleeping on a pillow and calming the storm, fear, faith and losing control, the sign of Jonah, the region of Gerasenes, the Roman demon Legion, Jesus causing economic disruption, Jesus hanging out with the ‘ochlos’ (crowd of undesirables), Jairus and his daughter and the bleeding woman. Mark 4:35-5:43 Who are the people in your world who count the least to you? Jesus values and elevates them.
Jon and Dr B discuss: the mustard tree (actually a bush), structures and institutions, the nature of parables, Jesus being offensive, cultivating the soil of our lives, and hearing but not listening. Mark 4:1-34
Jon and Dr Stephen discuss: the ‘eternal sin’ and blaspheming the Holy Spirit, what Jesus meant by the eternal age, Jesus challenging more socioeconomic structures (this time the tribal family way of life), a time Jon experienced grieving the Holy Spirit, ‘binding the strong man’, Jesus’ band of merry men, strongholds and exorcism.

Jon and Dr Stephen discuss: the early Jewish mindset toward sin, individual sin and corporate sin, Jesus naming himself as the Son of Man, the offence of Jesus being with ‘tax collectors and sinners’, how quickly Jesus caused trouble and where he would do so first in our culture, redressing the balance in our attitude toward sin, and how we can begin to address institutional and social sin in our society. Mark 2:1-17
