In which these eleven events in Jesus’ life from the book of Mark rise above the narrative and proclaim who Jesus truly is.
For the last two months I’ve been posting on specific events in Jesus’ life found in the book of Mark.
Events that demonstrate his unlimited power over nature, sickness and demons. Events that strike terror. That create awe. That even hardens hearts.
But hardened hearts indicate one thing: They knew Jesus to be dangerous.
Jesus is dangerous. And glorious. And worthy to be worshipped. He’s not tame nor tranquil, but terrifying to the wicked and triumphant to the humble.
It’s these events that provoked Peter to declare, “You are the Christ.” And it’s these events that provoke the righteous to fall to the ground and declare, “You are our Savior.”
And that is the appropriate response to the one who came to earth to bear the punishment for our sins so that we might live. Jesus is God as man. In the end, that is who these events declare Jesus truly is.
