S10 Episode 10: Unexpected Savior - Mark 1-8 Review
In this podcast, Erin Warren gives a review of Mark 1-8, revisiting each chapter at a high level to remind us of the structure, themes, and truths about who Jesus is. He is the Unexpected Savior - not a conquering king, but rather a Man of Sorrows, Servant, and Savior. He came to preach the gospel and in doing so, planted small seeds in the lives of twelve men. It's a story of growing faith, rooted (pun intended) in the repeated theme: hear, believe, bear fruit. The seed of faith starts with hearing the Good News, believing, and then turning to follow Christ and His ways, bearing fruit as you go.
The Gospel of Mark challenges the expected ideal of the Messiah—not a conquering king or a wish-granting genie, but rather a man of sorrows and a suffering servant. This short yet impactful account of Jesus’ life reveals the character of the One who came to save us. Jesus was not what they were expecting; He was better.
