Discussion for Mark 10

    The rich young ruler; I always feel sorry for him when I read his story. He was so-o-o close. He 'tho't he loved God because he kept all the law (this was the O.T. time, even WE call the 4 gospels the 'N.T.'); a testament cannot be of force until the testator is dead. The N.T. began in Acts ch. 2 with the beginning of the ch. age.

    Jesus said that a spouse who breaks the marriage covenant has adulterated that covenant (made it unfit for its original purpose). The marriage covenant is no longer valid. The spouse who did not break the covenant becomes a free agent, and may divorce and remarry without sinning. The Bible Trivia question in the right column about divorce and remarriage is incorrect.

    In verse 40 Jesus said the different positions in heaven were not his to give. This right belonged to God to put into place different ones as He sees fit.

    I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. But thou sparest all: for they are thine, O Lord, thou lover of souls.

    All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

    The Gospel of God cometh only from God, our Father which art in heaven. Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: Father, the hour is come glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. The mercy of man is toward his neighbour but the mercy of the Lord is upon all flesh: he reproveth, and nurtureth, and teacheth and bringeth again, as a shepherd his flock. Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
