Search The Scriptures —Study 16 — Mark 8:1-26

Study 16 From The Book of Mark is: Mark 8: 1-26

  1. What characteristic features in the Lord Jesus stand out in the miracle of 8:1-9? Cf. Mt. 6:33. Of what was His provision a sign?
  2. Why did Christ warn the disciples to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of Herod (verse 15)? Why did He question them about the miracles that had recently taken place?  How do thought and reflection of this kind help us to grow spiritually?
  3. Verses 22-26.  What may we learn from this incident about the way and the cost of leading someone in need to experience the saving power of Christ?
Note.  Verse 15.  The word ‘leaven’ used here symbolically refers to the unseen pervasive influence of sin.
