"First, he silences and casts out the serpent. He wars against Satan and exorcises the devils.
Second, he heals a woman (Peter’s mother-in-law) from burning fever, itself a symbol of desire/burning of the passions.
And now third, he heals a man, a leper, a son of Adam who has in his body a perpetual reminder of death, of “to dust you shall return.”
And so Mark is giving us Jesus as the one who comes to undo the curse, who comes to crush the serpent’s head, and who will die and rise to deliver His people. This is the hope of the gospel, repent and believe."
In this podcast we finish Chapter 1 of Mark’s Gospel, this is the 6th sermon in our series, and so far we have covered a lot of ground.
