One of the most amazing features of the Gospels, and of the ministry of Jesus, is the type of men he chose to be his disciples. If you and I were putting together a ministry team, these are probably not the kind of people we would choose to represent us. This passage has something to teach those who are disciples of Jesus Christ and serve him today. We will discover that just as Jesus had a mission for the original twelve disciples, he has a mission for us as well.
At the heart of Christianity is a central question, "Just who is Jesus?” It may be astounding to some that such a question is still relevant after nearly two millennia of Christian activity, but as strange as it may seem, even Christians do not agree about the nature of the Founder of Christianity. This fact says a great deal about those who profess to be "Christian," which at its most basic means "follower of Christ." If Christians display such profound disagreement about Jesus Christ Himself, can they all really be following the same Person? This series follows the Mark’s Gospel as he takes us on a journey to introduce to us the real Jesus of history.
