This Week’s Theme – Jesus Christ, the Suffering Servant of God
This Week’s Verse to Remember – Mark 10:45 – “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
Today’s Devotional Reading and Assignment
Please Read and compare Mark 1:1 and Matthew 1:1-17
What is different between these two passages?
Why doesn’t Mark include a genealogy based on fact that Matthew reveals Jesus as King and Mark reveals Him as a Servant?
Please also read Isaiah 61:1-3 and Luke 22:27
Quote of the Day – “Mark wrote primarily for Roman readers, and his emphasis is on Jesus Christ as the Servant of God. One of his key words is “straightway” (immediately), used forty-one times in the book. Mark portrays Jesus as the Servant of God constantly on the go and meeting the needs of all kinds of people.” – Dr. Warren Wiersbe in Wiersbe’s Expository New Testament Outlines.
