Discussion for Mark 2

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus in action! Healing the sick, showing the doubters that He is the son of God and dining with sinners. In verse 17, He said " I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." So he came to call us to repentance. The world should hearken. Judgement day is fast approaching.
  • Irene123
    " ... and they broke up the roof ... " Notice the colon before this phrase, clause, whatever. A colon in God's always denotes what follows is - important. When one goes to an altar of repentance and is sincere, they will generally literally cry out to God for forgiveness with tears; I did, and still do, at every service - I love Him so much for what He brought me from. cont. --
  • Esther
    Jesus is the great I am. He forgives sins and heals the sick. He loves the willing souls to come to Him. He is Lord of the Sabbath and does not relent on the Sabbath to anyone. He loves the sinners to come to Him for salvation. He is the only living and true God Amen.
  • Irene123
    V.27 - the '7th' day is this AGE of Grace; it's open-ended- so ALL can be saved (but won't). The 7thday will CLOSE at the Rapture - when this day of Grace has ended.
  • A disciple
    For 23-28: When the LORD had Moses appoint Captains and Rulers out of each Tribe, it was to teach us to judge one another, and to rule with justness and compassion, and not seek to bring every offense to God for judgment: for when the matter was brought to God, it was expected that He would judge absolutely. The law was not made for oppressing anyone; but to teach us Christ's character of love.
  • Irene123
    I have seen on here many many refs. to the Sabbath DAY. I've never seen any of them explain vs. 23-27, and all the other scriptures that tell of Jesus 'doing' on the Sabbath. Nor have I seen anyone ask these sabbath day believers to explain these verses of Jesus 'doing' on the Sabbath; all anyone does is argue with them.
