What is the good news of Jesus? Jesus came proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God. In Mark 1:15, Jesus says, “The time has come. The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!” Each week, we will study a passage of Mark asking together, “What good news does this passage proclaim?” We are good news people; we have good news to tell.

  • "Authority"

    October 18, 2020

    Mark 1:21-34

    Rev. Katie Fowler

    “The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:27‬ ‭‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ The work of restoration, of healing our world and our lives and restoring shalom, is centered in Jesus. Jesus is Lord. The True King. Jesus is the one who speaks with authority, who acts with authority. Christ is “far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.” -(‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:21‬)‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ As we are sent into the world, we proclaim the good news, “Jesus is Lord.”
