Study 3 From The Book of Mark is: Mark 1:35 – 2:12
- After the astonishing events of the preceding day Jesus had to consider what He should do next. How did He arrive at a decision, and to what decision did He come? In what way did the healed leper’s disobedience hinder Jesus’s work? What bearing has this upon (a) our prayer life, and (b) the Church’s missionary duty? Cf. Jn. 20:21; Mk. 16:15
- What evidences do you find in this story in chapter 2 of our Lord’s powers of discernment? What did Jesus ‘see’? And when He confirmed a verbal claim, which men questioned, by a miraculous work, which none could deny, to what truths was He bearing decisive witness?
Note. 2:4. The house would have a flat roof, which could be reached by an outside stairway (cf. 13:15).
