Discussion for Mark 1

  • Stan-Ivoke Pleroma
    Olu: Jesus (oh I love that name Jesus) is God but he lived his life as a man on earth. He has all the attributes of a man on earth. He became a man in other to qualify to save man. He came to teach us how to activate God's word to get result. Verse 12 shows that He prepared well before starting the soul winning job. Imagine, He just say "follow me" and its done. The job is easier when prepared.

    Olu william; Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea of His mother Mary...Jesus Christ came in the flesh to save us all from our sins and the power of darkness, reconciling us to God BY HIS BLOOD! The Apostles were chosen from among MANY witnesses to testify the Glad Tidings of the grace of God THROUGH JESUS DYING ON THE CROSS FOR US! JESUS IS A PERSON!
