Overview of the Gospel of Mark

Mark “Mark John” is also known as “John” in the Book of Acts.  He is not John the Baptist.  Peter (disciple)  was a mentor to Mark.  Mark did not walk with Jesus but ministered under Peter.  Peter called Mark, his son.  Mark’s work was written in Italy around A.D. 50-70 before the Book of Acts.  Mark’s work is referred to as the “Memoirs of Peter” because he was very close to the disciple Peter and listen to everything Peter said.   The Gospel of Luke borrowed a lot of Mark’s notes. 

The Gospel of Mark focuses on the miracles that Jesus performed while spreading his ministry in Galilee.  Mark’s Gospel emphasizes Jesus Christ’s human nature, emotions, and limitations. *Note: This side of Jesus demonstrates that there aren’t any human conditions that he is not aware of and therefore his believers can know that he understands our problems and situations.

Hosanna

OVERVIEW OF  THE GOSPEL OF MARK CHAPTER  ELEVEN

Jesus and his disciples went into Jerusalem and unto the Mount of Olives.  He told the men to go into town and there they will find a colt that no one ever sat on. They were to untie it and bring it to him. If anyone questions them, they were to tell them that the Lord needs it and will return it.  They did just that. Upon returning with the colt, Jesus sat on it. Everyone praised him as he rode into Jerusalem.   Mark 11:9-10  Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: 10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest. 

Note: From the Old Testament, before Jesus’ birth, it was prophesized by  Zechariah 9:9  “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”

Once in Jerusalem, Jesus and the disciples were walking and Jesus was hungry. He saw a fig tree and wanted food from it. The fig tree bore no fruit and Jesus cursed it. No man eat the fruit of thee hereafter forever”, and his disciples heard it

Note: Jesus seriously expects his creations to produce good fruit (physical and/or spiritual).  Matthew 3:10  “And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore, every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”

Later, Jesus goes into the synagogue and finds traders, merchants, and money changers. He is angry and turnover tables.  Mark 11:17 KJV  17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.  

Note: Jesus establishes the main role of the church: A house of prayer. Newer translated bibles state, “A  house of prayer and worship”.

Peter told Jesus that the fig tree he cursed dried up. Mark 11: 2426KJV  Jesus replied,   24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them25And when ye stand praying, forgive if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

2.  Jesus curse the fig tree.

3. Jesus drives out the moneychangers in the church.

4.  God answers the faith.

5.  Jesus silences those who question his authority.

 

 

Reflection and Discussion: Something to think about.

There is a popular sensation going on about manifesting into existence what you want.  However, faith in God is stronger and better.  Jesus claims what you speak and ask God for in Jesus’ name, believe you have it and you shall receive it. Manifesting is on the verge of witchcraft because you are accessing God’s system without asking him for permission.  Can you remember asking God for something that was great and you received it? leave your comment below or on social media because that is a testimony.

 1. You will learn the prophecy fulfilled about Jesus as he rides a donkey into the public entry.

1And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples, 2And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him3And if any man says unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him, and straightway he will send him hither.

4And they went their way and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met, and they loose him from the door. 5And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt? 6And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go. 7And they brought the colt to Jesus and cast their garments on him, and he sat upon him.  8And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

 9And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: 10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

 

Note: From the Old Testament, before Jesus’ birth, it was prophesized by  Zechariah 9:9  “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”

 

 

2.  You will learn why Jesus curses a fig tree.

11And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide came, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve. 12And on the morrow, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry: 13And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat the fruit of thee hereafter forever. And his disciples heard it.    Note: Jesus seriously expects his creations to produce good fruit (physical and/or spiritual).  Matthew 3:10  “And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore, every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”

 

 

3. You will learn the role of the church established by Jesus.

 16And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. 17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. 18And the scribes and chief priests heard it and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. 19And when even was come, he went out of the city. 20And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursed is withered away.

Note: Jesus establishes the main role of the church: A house of prayer. Newer translated bibles state, “A  house of prayer and worship”.

 

4. You will learn how God answers the faith when you make a request of him.

 21And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursed is withered away. 22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

 24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them25And when ye stand praying, forgive if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

 

 

5.  Jesus shows his confidence in his authority as he refuses to answer to the Pharisees.

27And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, 28And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things? 29And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.

 31And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him? 32But if we shall say, On; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed. 33And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.f me
