Between verses 13 and 14 in Mark chapter one there is about a year of silence in the public ministry of Christ. John’s gospel gives us the account of what was happening during this year. Jesus’ ministry was primarily with a handful of John’s former disciples and with individuals. There was not really any public proclamation to the masses. John the Baptist was still on the scene. That all changed though in verse 14 where we read that John was put into prison. Now was the time for Jesus to step onto the scene in a public manner. The Bible says that He came preaching, literally proclaiming or heralding, the gospel of the Kingdom. He was calling out for everyone to repent. We examined this message by Jesus this past Sunday at Tabernacle Baptist Church. This was part one of a two-part message entitled “Following and Fishing.” You can listen to this message by following this link or visit our sermons page.
