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

Getting to Know Jesus in the Gospel of Mark
Study Fourteen: Mark 3:1-6

1 Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand. 2 And they watched Jesus, to see whether he would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse him. 3 And he said to the man with the withered hand, “Come here.” 4 And he said to them, “Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to kill?” But they were silent. 5 And he looked around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, and said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was restored. 6 The Pharisees went out and immediately held counsel with the Herodians against him, how to destroy him. (Mark 3)

1.  What would Jesus have meant to the man with the weathered hand?


2. What did the Pharisees think was the issue in relation to this man?


3. What did Jesus make the issue?


4. How would you contrast the difference between the way the religious leaders saw Jesus, and the way Jesus saw them?


5. What was Jesus teaching about himself by healing the man’s hand in spite of the opposition from the religious elite?


6. In what ways do we still see people responding to Jesus the way the Pharisees responded to him in their day?


7. How would you describe your response to Jesus?
