Mark 6:7-30
May 17, 2009 am - Here's a word you may not have heard before: sandwiching. It's a literary technique in which you start Story A, interrupt it with Story B, and after Story B is done, you go back to Story A and finish it. Mark does this twelve times in his Gospel, including here, in the middle of chapter 6. Story A ... More >>>

Mark 6:31-56
May 24, 2009 am - The second half of Mark chapter 12 tells two of the most beloved stories in the Bible. In the first, Jesus feeds five thousand men in the wilderness with food barely enough for one man. In the second, He walks on the water to save His friends from a storm that has blown up on the Sea of Galilee. ... More >>>

Mark 7:1-37
May 31, 2009 am - When I was in high school, there was nothing I liked more than watching a good fight. My best friend, at the time, got into plenty of them, and they were always the best part of a dull day. At the end of a fight, I always knew who started it and who won it (unless a teacher broke it up), and if he ... More >>>

Mark 8:1-26
Jun 07, 2009 am - The first half of Mark 8 sounds very much like the second half of Mark 6. Both begin with Jesus feeding thousands of men in the wilderness. From there, they cut to the Sea of Galilee where the disciples are worried and the Lord is frustrated. They're fretting because they don't know who He is and ... More >>>

Jun 28, 2009 am - Four years after the rise of Adolf Hitler to supreme power in Germany, a young pastor published a book in which he coined the haunting term, Cheap Grace.

Jul 05, 2009 am - Preaching on the Transfiguration of Christ, a young pastor introduced his sermon- 'Every Word of God is pure, said the Psalmist, and this means it demands reverence from all who read or hear it. If this is true of God's every Word, it is doubly true of this Word. If Moses took off his shoes at the ... More >>>

Mark 9:14-29
Jul 12, 2009 am - Pardon me for repeating myself, but I couldn't come up with a new way of saying it- In their close reading of the Bible, scholars have found a storytelling device called sandwiching. It works like this: the writer starts with a story, interrupts it with a different story, and then goes back to ... More >>>

Mark 9:30-50
Jul 19, 2009 am - The death march has begun. Yesterday or the day before, Jesus and His disciples were in Caesarea Philippi, where in the presence of Peter, James, and John, He was transfigured. For a moment, He was freed from the grubbiness of this life to enjoy the glory and purity of the life to come. This is the ... More >>>

Mark 10:1-16
Jul 26, 2009 am - What God has joined together, Let no man put asunder. This is not all the Bible says about marriage and divorce, but what it says is true, and we must not explain it away by appealing to verses more in tune with the times, or to be candid, the ones we like better. Disciples of Christ are not free ... More >>>

Mark 10:17-31
Aug 02, 2009 am - What does it mean to be a disciple of Christ? For many people it means reading the Bible, praying, going to church, and living a good life. We ought to be doing these things, of course, but they do not make a disciple, even if they're done consistently and from the heart. We know they don't ... More >>>
