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).
