Mark (Program #58) – A Life Fully According To and For God’s New Testament Economy (18)

The 27 books of the New Testament have often been arranged by Christians into three sections. The first section includes the gospels plus the book of Acts as the books of history. And then from Romans to Jude are the epistles, the 21 epistles in the New Testament followed by the concluding book in the Bible, Revelation.

However recently through the life study of Mark, we’ve seen that there is another way to divide the New Testament into sections and this way of dividing the books of New Testament is related to the living Person of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Because the entire New Testament is concerned with this living Person, Who is the embodiment of the Triune God.

The gospel of Mark ends with the Lord’s ascension. So what is the Lord Jesus doing now that He has resurrected and ascended?

In order to find out what the Lord is doing after His ascension, we need the book of Acts. Acts 1:5 says, “For John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”   And Act 1: 8 says, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Mark (Program #55) – A Life Fully According To and For God’s New Testament Economy (14 & 15)

Have you received the Lord Jesus and is He now in You? We all can testify strongly, at least we hope so, that we have received the Lord and that He is in us. But has the Lord been transfigured in you?  We need the Lord to grow in us, until He is blossoms. That blossoming would be the transfiguration of the Lord Jesus in us in a practical way. Such a transfiguration is the kingdom of God.

What is the central thought of the Lord’s message in Mark chapter 4?

The central thought is that the Lord is the sower, sowing Himself into us as a seed. He opened His preaching in chapter 4 with these words, “Behold, the sower went out to sow.” Later in chapter 4:26 He said, “So is the kingdom of God: as if a man cast seed on the earth,

Here we have the Lord as the sower, sowing Himself as the seed into God’s chosen people.

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.
