Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring how the Gospel of Mark identifies Jesus as both the Son of God and the servant of all – a son with the authority of God and yet a son who chooses to act as servant to those he came to show God’s love. A son who ultimately will give his life on behalf of all people. What can Mark teach us about living in such a way that we are so confident in who we belong to, that we too are prepared to live sacrificially on behalf of others?
This Sunday, we’ll be looking at Mark 2:1-12 – Who is this person who claims authority to forgive sin and heal people? Who gave him authority? Who could he be?
