Like One of the Prophets

Who is Jesus?  As we’ve looked at Mark, we’ve already said that this is one of the central questions that’s being asked.  We find in this passage, that people at that time were asking that question and coming up with various answers, all associated with the prophetic history of Israel.  As we look at their answers, especially in the context of Christ’s message of repentance, we’ll find that Christ came as the ultimate, final, prophet.

They Went Out and Preached that People Should Repent

This passage shows Jesus and his disciples on a revolution — they are out with a radical message and an urgent mission. As we look at this passage, we’ll learn more about that message and how Jesus and his disciples are getting that message out. We’ll see how people respond to this message in this passage. And as we look at Jesus and his disciples sharing this message, we’ll see that we too are both recipients of this message and those entrusted to carry this message forward to the world — we are all part of this revolution of hearts and souls!
