Mark 1 Bible Study
In Mark 1: 1-8, John the Baptist began his ministry earlier than Jesus Christ. He preached the message of the kingdom of God in the desert and many people repented and baptized. He wore clothes made from the hair of camel. He wore a leather belt on his waist. John’s baptism is not the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is only sent after Jesus ascended into heaven. The Holy Spirit is a gift from God to us. The Holy Spirit will guide us and help us in all our problems.
In Mark 1:9-13, Jesus came to John to be baptized. When Jesus come up from the water, the Holy Spirit descended on him in the likeness of a dove. Then, God said from heaven that Jesus is his son, whom he is well pleased. The Holy Spirit led Jesus into the desert where he fasted for 40 days and 40 nights. While Jesus was in the desert, the devil came to test him. However, Jesus defended himself against the devil by using the word of God.
In Mark 1:14-20, Jesus went to Galilee to preach the good news after John was imprisoned. John was imprisoned because he told Herod that it is not right for him to marry the wife of his brother, Philip. The good news is that Jesus Christ had died for our sins on the cross so that we can receive eternal life through him. Through Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, we can receive the forgiveness of our sins and be considered as righteous before God. Jesus saw several fishermen while he was walking near the Galilee see including Simon, his brother Andrew, and James and his brother John. When Jesus call you to do something, you must not delay in doing it. We must obey God’s calling in our lives. Jesus said anyone who do not put him first in his life is unworthy to be called his disciple. We must always put Jesus first in our lives.
In Mark 1:21-28, Jesus was teaching at the synagogue when a man possessed with evil spirit shouted out. Jesus rebuked the evil spirit and it came out of the person. When you are under attack by an evil spirit, you must rebuke it in the name of Jesus. When you command the evil spirit to come out in Jesus name, you must believe. If you don’t believe, you will not be able to cast out the evil spirit.
In Mark 1:29-34, Jesus went to the house of Simon. Simon’s mother in law was having a fever but Jesus healed her. Later, many people brought the sick and demon possessed people to Jesus and they were all healed.
In Mark 1:35-39, Jesus went to a solitary place to be alone from the crowd. However, his companions found him and told him everyone is looking for him.
In Mark 1:40-45, a man that suffered from leprosy came to Jesus. The man believed that Jesus can healed him so his leprosy left him. Jesus told him not to tell anyone because he was afraid that his enemies will know and come to capture him. Jesus will be handed into the hands of his enemies to be crucified but the time has not yet arrived yet so they couldn’t capture him.
