Discussion for Mark 1

  • Irene123
    to coupe 1942 ( my birth year) on Mark ch.1 -- Jesus baptism was for our example, to be baptized and by immersion - not 'pouring' or 'sprinkling', and to prove to those many, many people standing around that Jesus was the messiah, hence too the voice from heaven - which they all heard. No, Jesus had no sin.
  • 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.
