What’s the most miraculous thing you’ve ever observed?
Maybe a magic show, or something in nature, or a literal miracle. How did you feel as you watched?
This week we’re going to watch as Jesus shows he’s not just some charismatic, moral leader.
WE WANT TO:
• Understand Jesus’s character and mission.
• Feel excited at Jesus’s ability to equip us to follow him.
• Live in light of our knowledge of who Jesus is and what he’s about.
READ: Mark 6:30–8:30
Think about everything we’ve discussed so far in the Gospel of Mark. What difference does it make that Jesus can create something out of nothing? What does it say about his nature?
Based on Jesus’s words in Mark 8:11–21, what problem do you think Jesus had with the religious leaders’ request for proof of his authority?
What does it betray about the peoples’ attitude toward him?
Why do you think Jesus has such hard words for the religious leaders?
What are they missing?
What does Jesus want from them instead?
What’s one thing you think Jesus might be asking of you this week?
Following Jesus doesn’t require blind faith. But it does mean trusting in his nature and character based on the evidence he’s given us in his life and words. Demanding proof on our own terms betrays a heart that doesn’t want to follow.
