This morning we returned to our sermon series on the Gospel of Mark. Mark’s gospel is an action gospel. It contains stories of Jesus moving quickly from one place to the other. The narrative is fast paced. Mark tells us that Jesus taught, but very rarely does he tell us what Jesus taught. In chapter four though that all changes as Mark takes his pen and reveals to us four important parables. It strikes me that Mark tells us that Jesus spoke many parables, but he only gives us these four here. Why did he include these four? Is there something that ties all of these together. I believe if we study this chapter we will see that Mark was very deliberate in what he was doing. He intentionally wrote the way he did. Listen to the sermon “Lessons on the Kingdom” as we unpack the last three of the parables. You can also visit our sermons page.
