Mark 2:18-28

Have you never read (verse 25)?

I find this passage relatively straightforward, and yet somehow I don’t understand it. What is the new wine? What is the old garment? Why was it OK for David and his men to violate God’s law, but not Uzzah (II Samuel 6:6-7)?

Mark 3:1-19

Jesus is grieved at our hardness of heart (verse 5).

Apostles are with Jesus, they preach, and they cast out demons (verses 14-15).

Simon Peter, James and John Boanerges, Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, Jame, Thaddeus, Simon, and Judas Iscariot.

Jeremiah 20

Beatings and days in the stocks don’t shut Jeremiah up.

Jeremiah 21

Pestilence, sword, famine, and captivity. Do I deserve any better?

Thank God for the blood of Christ.

Jeremiah 22

Why is Israel (and Jerusalem) mired in so much war? Because they did not follow God with their whole hearts (verse 9).
