Faith–False and True. July 19, 2020 Sunday School. Mark 6:1-6


Mark 3:13 through 6:6, the section of Mark’s Gospel that began with Jesus choosing the twelve disciples, concludes in today’s passage, Mark 6:1-6, with Jesus and the disciples coming to His hometown. Jesus teaches in His hometown synagogue. Those who should have believed in Jesus–the Teachers of the Law, His family, and the people of His hometown, reject Him. They don’t want to acknowledge His authority or endure the embarrassment of following Him. The hometown folk think they are as good as He is. And yet the disciples have seen His power over creation, evil spirits, and even death itself. The woman healed of minstral flow exhibits true faith and becomes His “daughter” and disciple.
