Week 4 Part 2.
Thank you for your patience. I am late with the summary and questions for Mark 2-5.
But without further ado – here is the summary and discussion questions.
Jesus is in Capernaum and people began to notice where he was. People started to gather together to the point that there was literally no more room for anyone else. There was a man sick with Palsy – Jesus seeing the faith of the man he heals him. The scribes thought that this was inappropriate.
Jesus also taught more people. He tells Levi to follow him. He then eats at his house and people begin to question why he is eating with such people and why his disciples were not fasting. Jesus address the Sabbath.
