Mark (Program #52) – A Life Fully According To and For God’s New Testament Economy (9)

In Mark chapter 8, 9 the Lord Jesus is recognized as being the Christ. Then He goes on to unveil for the first time, His death and resurrection. It’s very significant that this unveiling comes immediately after the healing of a blind man in Bethesda. Before the Lord Jesus unveiled Himself, He healed a blind man. This indicates that in order to see Christ in His death and resurrection, we need to be healed of our blindness.

Luke chapter 17 verse 20-21 tells us, “And when He was questioned by the Pharisees as to when the kingdom of God was coming, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation;  Nor will they say, Behold, here it is! or, There! For behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.

Mark (Program #48) – A Life Fully According To and For God’s New Testament Economy (4) & (5)

Both John chapter 1 verse 1 and Mark chapter 1 verse 1 both use the word ‘beginning.’

John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Here the word ‘beginning’ denotes eternity past. John use of this word is very mysterious.  Yet Mark on the contrary speaks of the beginning of the gospel.  The gospel of Mark is unique among the four gospels in opening with the clear expression, the beginning of the gospel.

Mark (Program #46) – A Life Fully According To and For God’s New Testament Economy (2)

Most readers of the Bible appreciate the gospel of Mark partially as a wonderful collection of the stories concerning the miracles of Jesus. But much more than the mere collection of the Bible stories, during the course of this life study of the book of Mark, we have been brought into the view, that what Mark really presents is the biography of another kind of person, another kind of living, another kind of humanity, another kind of life, the life of the Godman, Jesus Christ. He was one Who fully rejected His natural life, even allowing that He would be put to death in every way. Instead He lives moment by moment by the very divine life that was also present within Him.

This brings up for our consideration today a profound and utterly crucial question, do we have the realization that the divine life of God is also present within us, and available for us to live by moment by moment?

Mark (Program #2) – A Word of Introduction (2)

Many people wonder why the Bible gives us four historical accounts of the life and ministry in Jesus. One of reasons is the each of the four gospels portrays Christ in a unique aspect.  For example, Matthew a book on the kingdom of God reveals Christ in His kingship. Luke shows us Christ’s perfect and upright humanity as a genuine man.  John on the other hand stresses the eternal, uncreated life of God as it is revealed in Christ. John is the gospel of Christ’s divinity.

Then what about Mark?  Well, chapter 10:45 gives us a clue,  “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many.” Mark is wonderful in that it uniquely reveals that Christ lay aside His kingship, His status as God and even His position as a high and honored man to become God’s servant and eventually to become a slave to all mankind giving His life as a ransom for many.

Genesis (Program #2) -The General Sketch and Central Thought (2)

The real focus of not only Genesis but the whole Bible is life.  It begins with life and ends with life.  The light that we received in this life study of Genesis will bring out all the seeds of the truth that is unfolded throughout the Bible.  Everything here is opening up that this is a book of life.  When we touch the Bible at any point, If we really touch the Lord Himself as life we will be very much nourished.

When we come to the Bible we have to realize that every book has been breathed out by God.  We have to say “Lord I want to touch You, as I read this book I want to contact You.”  I realize now that the book of Genesis is really also a book of life, not just a book of stories, not just of lives of man but the book of life itself, which is God Himself breath into this book and now when we breath Him in as we read this book we really get a supply of the divine life.
