Part I in a three-part series on the Gospel of Mark.
Life Truth: The Gospel of Jesus Christ is SCANDALOUS. The Gospel proclaims that people are INADEQUATE to rectify their situation before a Holy God. This is OFFENSIVE to the heart of man. V.3
1. A Scandalous Message and Method: DISCIPLING MEN and TEACHING THE BIBLE.
2. A Scandalous Identity: DEITY. VV.2b&3
3. A Scandalous Identity: HUMANITY. VV.4-6
Life Application: To invite Jesus Christ into one’s life is to invite a SCANDAL into one’s life. Christ-followers do now have any other option but to bear the same OFFENSE that Jesus bore.
