What the Scribes Missed
January 6, 2019 Speaker: Series: The Gospel of Mark: Following the Suffering Servant
Passage: Mark 12:35–12:44
Series Sermon #42: In the final part of Mark 12, Jesus corrects the scribes and challenges the crowd to beware. He specifically addresses problems in the scribes' theology and behavior and uses the example of a lowly widow to encourage his followers to press on. Among other important emphases, Jesus takes this opportunity to lay out a fuller explanation of his own nature as both the son and lord of King David.
