Mark 1 Overview:
John (clothed with Camels hair and ate locusts and wild honey) preaching repentance and baptizing in the wilderness for the remission of sins.
“I indeed have baptized you with water, but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.” V.8
Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan River, and the heavens opened and the spirited descended on Him like a Dove. After, Jesus went into the wilderness and fasted for 40 days and 40 nights. He was tempted by the devil.
After that Jesus went to Galilee preaching the gospel saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent ye, and believe the gospel.”
Jesus picked Simon, Andrew, James and John to follow him.
Jesus taught in the synagogue and everyone was astonished being that he taught with authority. That’s when an unclean spirit that was in a man spoke to Jesus. Jesus delivered him.
Jesus healed Simon’s mother in law, as well as many that were sick of diverse diseases, and cast out many devils.
Jesus also heals the leper who asked. Jesus does however, he tells the man to not tell anyone but to go show himself to the priest and to do the things which Moses commanded. On the contrary the man goes away telling EVERYONE! It gets to the point where there are people coming to Jesus from “every quarter”. He could no longer enter into the City, but was forced into desert places.
- Who ministered to Jesus after he fasted?
- What does this verse mean, “For he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.”? (v. 22)
- Here we see that even the unclean spirit in the man knew who Jesus was and plead for him not to hurt them. What did Jesus say to the unclean spirit?
- How did the unclean spirit come out?
- When did Jesus’ fame spread through Galilee?
- When did Jesus wake up to pray?

My Own Words:
Blessed is the one who doesn’t seek the advice, opinions or instructions from those who do not accept God or Christianity, or those who are wicked,. —– Nor should we be mean, vile/derisive, abusive, or rude. But we should delight in the rules, commandments of God and meditate on them night and day. Doing so, we shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. Thus, having plentiful access to “water” for our spiritual nourishment, thus, baring correct fruits in the correct season. Whatever we do will prosper.
