Our second topic was demonstration, because in the scenes that are provided here by Mark we are exposed to some of the demonstrative power and purpose of Jesus. This is the point that I want us to consider to begin with this morning.
In examining this day in the life of Jesus, which is actually a Sabbath day, we see three prevailing themes. The first is confrontation. The second is demonstration and the third is explanation.
This section is probably fairly familiar to many of you, but may be new to some of our listeners, so I want to focus just on two aspects of it today. First of all, the message, which Jesus proclaims, and then the mission on which Jesus embarks.
In this short passage he provides us with two separate scenes, which we will deal with in turn: first of all, Jesus in the water; and secondly Jesus in the wilderness.
