A Note from Pastor Roger
Who is Jesus Christ? Throughout the weeks of Lent, we will look into Mark’s Gospel, which includes clues to Jesus’ identity. Throughout the book of Mark, people wonder and ask who Jesus is. While some will ask the question and never know, others will hit on the right answer. Yet, when they do so, Jesus tells them not to tell anyone else.
Only when Jesus died on the cross do we hear the Roman centurion soldier say, “Surely this man was the Son of God!” One person writes, “Once Jesus has given the last full measure of his life, it is safe to identify him.”
Can you identify Christ? As we will see, Mark drops evidence throughout his gospel, which helps us identify and see who Jesus is. Knowing who Jesus is shapes and influences our Christian everyday life.
