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

Getting to Know Jesus in the Gospel of Mark
Study Fifteen: Mark 3:7-12

7 Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea, and a great crowd followed, from Galilee and Judea 8 and Jerusalem and Idumea and from beyond the Jordan and from around Tyre and Sidon. When the great crowd heard all that he was doing, they came to him. 9 And he told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, lest they crush him, 10 for he had healed many, so that all who had diseases pressed around him to touch him. 11 And whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.” 12 And he strictly ordered them not to make him known. (Mark 3)

1.  How would you describe the effect Jesus was having on the people?


2. What does Mark state as the reason people were responding in this way?


3. What concern did Jesus have because of his human nature that is not a concern for him regarding his divine nature?


4. How would the unclean spirits have had knowledge of Jesus’ identity beyond what the people were seeing?


5. What has happened to change things from Jesus telling the demons not to make him known, and Jesus telling his disciples to tell the whole world about him?


6. What do you think is the intended effect of giving us further testimony of what Jesus did to minister to the people?


7. How would you describe yourself in relation to this intended effect?
