1:18 Straightway leaving their nets, they followed him - From this time they forsook their employ, and constantly attended him. Happy they who follow Christ at the first call!


Discussion for Mark 1

  • John Lamendola
    Jesus was without sin therefore he had nothing to repent of. He was Baptized to fulfill scripture. Baptizm is a type of burial where sins are remitted.
  • Coupe1942
    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.
  • Arnold Kawagle
    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.

    So i really want to have his Autobiography; His life time line . And i want to learn more about the Bible.

    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!!!

  • Gamaliel
    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!!
