We continued our journey through the first half of the Gospel of Mark in our “Real Jesus” series this weekend at Eastbrook. I brought a message on Jesus as the teacher from Mark 4:1-34. What I was trying to present is that Jesus is a powerful teacher about all of life and that we would do well to attend to His words.

You can listen to the message at the Eastbrook web-site here.

The outline for the message is included below:

Jesus the Master Teacher

  • Religion as a separate realm and the whole truth
  • Taking Jesus seriously as a teacher of truth
  • Entering of the way of the learner

Learning to Tell New Stories

  • The stories we live by
  • The stories of the kingdom of God

Learning to Listen with New Ears

  • Ears that do not hear
  • Ears that have discernment

Learning to Ask Questions

  • Being ‘out’ or ‘in’
  • Asking for explanations
