The Sunday Gospel for 14th October, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 14th October, 2018

This famous passage from Mark concerns the rich young man who wanted to follow Jesus but who got an answer he couldn't cope with.  It's a very uncomfortable answer for all who are comfortable!

 

The Sunday Gospel for 7th October, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 7th October, 2018

This passage from Mark relates Jesus' response to a question from some Pharisees meant to trap him.  He criticises the Jewish religious leaders and takes a hard line on marriage - warning what God has joined together, man must not separate.  I find it a really difficult passage which seems...

The Sunday Gospel for 30th September, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 30th September, 2018

This passage from Mark relates how the disciples are becoming quite territorial over Jesus.  Once again, Jesus gives them short shrift and tells them 'whoever is not against us, is for us.'   He goes on (in an echo of the Sermon on the Mount) about how if various parts of your body cause you...

The Sunday Gospel for 23rd September, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 23rd September, 2018

This is another passage from Mark where Jesus confuses the disciples who, by now, are getting themselves in a state.  He talks about his forthcoming death but they didn't get it and were too afraid to ask for clarification.  They end up arguing about who is the greatest among them and Jesus...

The Sunday Gospel for 16th September, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 16th September, 2018

This is a really perplexing passage in which Jesus asks his disciples who people think he is.  Peter eventually tells him that he thinks he is the Messiah - the Saviour.   And then, Jesus talks about how he had to die and Peter took issue with this, at which point he gets severely told off by...

The Sunday Gospel for 9th September, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 9th September, 2018

This is Mark's account of how Jesus healed a deaf man with a speech impediment. Interestingly, Jesus told the onlookers to tell no-one about it but they couldn't help themselves and the news spread!

 

The Sunday Gospel for 2nd September, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 2nd September, 2018

This is Mark's account of how Jesus responds to criticism of his friends.   He pulls no punches with the Pharisees - suggesting they concentrate less on external displays of religion and more on what comes from the heart of a person!

It is one of those occasions which surely...

The Sunday Gospel for 15th July, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 15th July, 2018

The story of how Jesus instructed his followers to go (without him) and spread the good news!

 

The Sunday Gospel for 8th July, 2018

The Sunday Gospel for 8th July, 2018

The story of how Jesus went back to his home town after he started his ministry.  You might think that he would be welcomed back but actually the people who knew of him there did not approve and Jesus was amazed at their lack of faith.
