Tomorrow we are continuing our studies in Mark’s gospel looking at chapters 2 and 3.
Jesus’ healing work is a theme of these chapters. He cures a paralysed man and another who had a withered hand. In fact, having “healed many” (3 v 10) he seeks refuge in a boat on the lake from the crowds who are crushing around.
Only three chapters into Mark’s record news of Jesus’ miraculous ability to heal is spreading and he is attracting large crowds wherever he goes.
Why did Jesus heal people and how did he have the power to do it? Do Jesus and the gospel still have the power to heal and save today?
Come along and learn with us. Get in touch via email or Facebook if you have any questions.
[all the people] were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”
