The Beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
March 4, 2018 Speaker: Brent Belford Series: The Gospel of Mark: Following the Suffering Servant
Passage: Mark 1:1–1:8
Series sermon #2: Mark begins his gospel by telling of the "beginnings of the gospel of Jesus Christ." The story of the gospel begins with a forerunner preparing the way for the Lord. John the Baptist arrives on the scene and calls Israel to repentance as he prepares the way for Christ. The Baptist's selfless ministry becomes an excellent example for all the followers of Christ.
