Bible Text: Mark 12:18-27 |


This morning we continue with Jesus on the way to His cross as depicted in the gospel of Mark. In our passage we find another group from the Sanhedrin that has come in an attempt to discredit Jesus and His teachings. Somehow, they must get the wider audience on their side in opposition to this carpenter before they lose their own position of influence and power. In response to their “riddle”, Jesus lays the reasons for their error out in black and white: “You don’t know the Scriptures and you don’t know the power of God.” How much of our own folly and doubt can be traced back to those very same reasons?
