This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 23 From the Book of Mark
is: Mark 11:1-19
1.What truths concerning our
Lord’s Person are specially evident in the incidents here described? Jesus had previously refrained from publicly
declaring His Messiahship. See 3:11, 12; 8:30; 9:9. Why then did He declare it now?
2.Verses 1-6. When the two
disciples were sent out by the Lord on this special errand, in what ways were
they put to the test, and how would they benefit from the experience? Do we display the same faith and boldness in
our service for Christ?
3.In what way does the fig three
described here typify Israel as a nation? What was Jesus seeking to teach His
disciples from this acted parable? Before passing judgment, ought we not first
to search our own hearts? Cf. Rom. 11:20, 21.
Note. Verse 13. ‘It was not the
season for figs’: it is fair to presume that the Lord was looking for the small
early ripe figs that ripen with the leaves before the main crop.
