Discussion for Mark 1

    Baptism is generally done as one confesses their sins. Jesus was baptized by John. Can one assume that Jesus then confessed any sins? Not meaning anything non-religious in this question, but just following the logic of what the term baptize means and wondered.

    Mark was Barnabas's nephew and Barnabas accept him while Paul rejected him, simply because He was not following them when they go for quest. Mark denied Christ, after feeling guilty for himself and asked for the second chance.

    This first chapter is so excellent! Interesting how it focuses on Jesus casting out devils at least three times. I could read this over and over and over. Praise God!!!

    This book speaks of the purpose of our King. Jesus came out preaching to repent! Change your way of thinking for the Kingdom of God is here. Not somewhere else in some other place but right here right now. What do you want to go to heaven for? Well Jesus said heaven has come to you....Now believe and Flow!!
