Discussion for Mark 3

  • Eutychus2018
    Do you find it odd, that in vs 9, Jesus asks the disciples to put him into a small ship? Yet there is nothing recorded as to what he said from that ship. And proceeded thereafter to go up into a mountain.

    In Chapter 4, vs 1, once again, he is placed into a boat, and preached what I call the "Sermon on the Sea"...

    I'm just making note of the peculiarity...mayhap you would know the reason for it.

    3/29 He who blaspheme the Holy Spirit, has not forgiveness but is endanger of damnation. Those who deny that Jesus is come from God and that his words are of the Holy Spirit (God manifest in earth) are in danger. A house divided cannot stand. Those who accuse Jesus of having a devil while he rebukes Satan are committed to Satan's domain. Those who do God's will are those whom Jesus befriends.

    Bless; I suppose that it was because of their Thunder-like personalities. But apparently that was how God made them, like how He makes all of us a certain special kind after His own likes! The parts where we have to be sanctified many times come in conflict with our "nature" but a sincere heart of love and obedience will get the victory, and by His grace become ALL of what God intended us to be.

  • Irene123
    Vs. 1-6; would anyone on here - destroy someone for doing good on the 'sabbath'? Do you make your bed in the a.m. on the 'sabbath'? Do you go get your newspaper on the 'sabbath'? These things are the same, actually more, in effort than what Jesus did on the (sic) 'sabbath'.
