The Confessions of Mark: An Overview of the Second Gospel
The first verse of the book of Mark gives Jesus’ title as “Christ, the Son of God.” Throughout Mark’s biography of Jesus, demons, disciples, and a host of others confess Jesus’ identity. Mark weaves numerous stories of Jesus’ life, ministry, death, and resurrection around these confessions, leading his audience to ask, with those who witnessed Jesus’ life, “Who is this?” At the end of the book, a Roman centurion, witnessing the crucifixion, proclaims, “Truly this was the Son of God.” This introductory sermon to our series through Mark’s Gospel examines Mark’s themes of the identity of Jesus and the nature of following him.
