Discussion for Mark 12

  • Servant of the Living God
    Oh, you elect. Who told you that you were not subject to the temptations, as was your Lord, Jesus the Christ. He was a sent one. He understood that to be human one must humble himself. He knew the Father and did not rise up against him as this froward generation has. They have perverted the word taking snipits and justifying their apostasy. They will not hear the truth for it is too hard
  • A disciple
    When God brought Israel out from the bondage of Egypt, He made a Covenant with them to be their God, and that they should be His people. Not only for themselves, but for the benefit of all the world, God separated Israel unto Himself, and gave them the Charge of His holy Oracles. Since they refused until there was no remedy, God now sends for His Elect from the Nations without them.
  • Wayne Dent
    All have fallen short but God's grace and mercy through His son's willful obedience has saved us. We are asked only to believe doubting nothing. There is too much focus on the darkness these days. Light dispels the darkness. We need His word more than ever. His word is light and will cut through the lie of this world.

    Jesus confirmed that He has come to fulfil the law with His response about the greatest of the laws- loving God with all our hearts and also loving our neighbours. God is a God of love.
