Mark Emphasizes

 

The deity of Jesus Christ is constantly shown.  He is the Son of Man the Messiah and he gave his life for a ransom.  Like John, Mark opens his book with a declaration of the divinity of Jesus Christ but unlike John he does not explain it.  It is apparent that Mark’s aim here is to allow the reader to make up his own mind by the wonderful deeds Jesus does to show His divinity.  Jesus for example in Northern Galilee heals a man of being deaf and dumb in Mark 7:30-37.  Jesus also proved this when he fed the 5000 and 4000.  In this cased He was Jesus the

provider and the one who can meet any physical need.  Jesus in the book of Mark met the needs of people immediately.  There is a lesson to learn here.  Jesus will meet your need a soon as you need it.  God is never slow or fast.  His timing is perfect.  The issue on our part is trust and obey.  Trust and obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey.
