Discussion for Mark 10

  • Jesse Bryant
    BSP says above, "the different positions in heaven were not his to give." It was not the positions in heaven that were at stake. This is why Jesus told them, "Ye know not what ye ask..." It was the positions on the crosses on either side of the crucified Jesus that was "given to them for whom it is prepared." James and John were unwittingly asking to be crucified with Jesus "in His glory".

    SPIRIT---COLOSSIANS 1:27 TO WHOM GOD WOULD MAKE KNOWN WHAT IS THE RICHES OF THE GLORY OF THIS MYSTERY AMONG THE GENTILES WHICH IS CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY JOHN 6:63 IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH THE FLESH PROFITETH NOTHING THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU THEY ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE -------PHILPPIANS 2:21 FOR ALL SEEK THEIR OWN NOT THE THINGS WHICH ARE JESUS CHRISTS
  • A disciple
    (42-45) The Times of the Gentiles, and of their form of Dominion over the earth, is coming to its completion and demise: the things that have so deeply held the minds and souls of men in darkness and bondage and hostile opposition to the Lord; are about to be taken away for ever, by the Coming of our Lord and Saviour. It is important that we know the difference between His Spirit and the world's.

    V. 32 - "........and Jesus went before them .........." He always goes before us - IF we are walking with Him in HIS truth. He went before us in persecutions even he was crucified. He went before us in hunger, in cold, heat, poverty (no where to live). He went before us in it all - as our example, along with loving the sinner, yet hating the sin, in forgiveness, in WITNESSING.
  • Irene123
    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 The marriage covenant is no longer valid.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.
