Jesus: Healing with Resurrection Power

Mark 5:21-43, NRSV
Psalm 131, NRSV

Reflections

Just as Jesus wasn’t coming to be a one-man liberation movement in the traditional revolutionary sense, so he wasn’t coming to be a one-man emergency medical centre. He was indeed starting a revolution, and he was indeed bringing God’s healing power, but his aim went deeper; these things were signs of the real revolution, the real healing, that God was to accomplish through his death and resurrection. Signposts are important, but they aren’t the destination.

Mark for Everyone

  • Jesus’ timing is not your timing
  • It always feels slow
  • It seems God doesn’t care
  •  

  • Jesus’ agenda is not your agenda
  • When He asked “who touch me,” He is to recognize the woman, who is not well-regarded
  •  

  • Jesus’ tenderness is what makes people trust Him
