Discussion for Mark 1

  • Irene123
    " ... and John was clothed with camel's hair and ate locusts and wild honey." John wasn't the reincarnation of Elijah (Elisha? sorry, can't recall which). Just as Elijah's mantle fell on Elisha - the mantle (Ordaining) fell on John. There was no 'reincarnation'; that's witchcraft and witchcraft is rebellion - 1 Sam. 15:23. And no, I did not MISQUOTE; I did not intend to quote.

  • Steve morrow
    MARK 1:14 NOW AFTER THAT JOHN WAS PUT IN PRISON JESUS CAME INTO GALILEE PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF KINGDOM OF GOD 1:15 AND SAYING THE TIME IS FULFILLED AND THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND --- REPENT YE --- AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL MARK 8:35 FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL LOSE HIS LIFE FOR MY SAKE AND THE GOSPELS SHALL SAVE IT
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus went about doing good. He healed all manner of diseases. He did it before and as the God that He is, He can do it over and over again. Let us present our sick bodies to him and our sin-sick souls for healing.
  • Irene123
    Yes, Jesus did heal from sickness, disease, but - that is not why He came among men. EVERYBODY, but everybody - knows why Jesus came to earth.
