Bible Study (Online): Gospel of Mark ~ Study Seven

Getting to Know Jesus in the Gospel of Mark
Study Seven: Mark 1:29-34

29 And immediately he left the synagogue and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 Now Simon's mother-in-law lay ill with a fever, and immediately they told him about her. 31 And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them.
32 That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons. 33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door. 34 And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. And he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him. (Mark 1)

1.  In our last study we saw that Jesus’ authority in teaching was matched with authority over unclean spirits. What more do we learn about the extent of Jesus’ authority?


2. How thorough was Jesus’ ministry of grace to Simon’s mother-in-law?


3. When Jesus called the fishermen to follow him, they left their careers and families to join Jesus. What do we learn about their ongoing relationship to their families?


4. How did Jesus use of visible signs reveal himself as the “Son of God” (1:1), “the Lord” (1:3), one who would “baptize you with the Holy Spirit” (1:8), God’s “beloved Son” (1:11)?    


5. What effect did Jesus’ miraculous work have on the people of the area?


6. What effect is this revelation of Jesus’ life and ministry having on you?
