Sermons on Mark

Jesus Is Alive, Are You?

Was Mark 16:9-20 a part of Mark’s original writing? We take a look at this to begin and then get into what is said in these verses and how they are a call to us to follow today. Bible Text: Mark 16:9-20

The Resurrection of Jesus

We look at the scene going on at the empty tomb as the women come to anoint Jesus’ body. They’re startled and amazed as they learn that Jesus has risen! May we too be amazed as we look in at the empty tomb – Jesus is alive! Bible Text: Mark 16:1-8

The Crucifixion of Jesus

The crucifixion is examined in this sermon unpacking for us what happened on that day at Calvary and what was accomplished for us through the cross. Bible Text: Mark 15:22-47

Jesus: Man for all Mankind

We look at the civil trial that Jesus undergoes as the Jews seek to bring Him to Pilate, the Roman authority, so that he would find fault and issue the death penalty. Pilate however marvels at such a Man who endured so much and kept moving with a resolved focus of the cross. Bible Text: Mark 15:1-21

Disputed, Dismissed, & Denied

Jesus is led away from the Garden of Gethsemane where his unjust trial begins. False accusations are given, but none of the witnesses can line their stories up. Finally Jesus admits that He is God, and allows the religious leaders to charge Him with blasphemy. It’s what must happen for Him to go to the cross. Jesus is in full control. We conclude with the story of Peter’s denial. Sad as it was, we’re reminded that Jesus never writes us off. Mark 14:53-72

Panicked or Praying?

In this passage we look at the Proud, the Praying, and the Panicked. In the midst of overconfidence and panic, Jesus teaches the importance of prayer. It’s a crucial time in Jesus’ life as He prepares for the cross, yet He takes time to go the Father. A priority that should be followed in every believer. Bible Text: Mark 14:27-52

Passover Plotting & Preparing

As Jesus prepares to lay His life down on the cross during Passover, we look at the plotting taking place and the preparation being done for His sacrifice. It’s a contrast between the evil work of His enemies, and the loving devotion of those who truly believe in Him. Mark 14:1-26
