Introduction

Mark recorded his gospel around AD 65. This Mark Bible study lessons covers two parts of Christ's earthly ministry. The first half of the book speaks of Jesus the servant, while the second half reveals His purpose for coming to earth—to be the manifestation of the gospel that was placed on heaven's back burner before the foundation of the earth.

Mark's home was a meeting place for Christians—a church. Christians gathered there for fellowship, prayer, and to gain spiritual strength from studying the Scriptures (Acts 12:12). Mark was a nephew of Barnabas, which is why we find Mark joining Barnabas on Paul's first missionary journey. Later on young Mark became a close companion to Peter which is likely why Peter refered to Mark as his son (1 Peter 5:13).




Mark
Bible Study Lesson 1

In this lesson we will examine the following events that took place once Jesus launched His earthly ministry:

  • How the gospel wasn't just a New Testament understanding, but was also revealed to the Old Testament saints (1:1).
  • How the purpose of the gospel is to set people free from two specific areas of bondage. Go to the home page and click on Freedom.
  • How Jesus used a power word to capture the attention of His audience.
  • Most top entertainers have a warm up act that precedes their performance. In this lesson we will see who was Christ's warm up act.
  • Why the Pharisees would have been puzzled when John the Baptist encouraged the Jews to repent (1:4).
  • Why repentance is a one-time event. For more information on repentance I recommend going to the home page and purchasing the book Under the Cloud.
  • The difference between the two baptisms mentioned in the Bible (1:8).
  • Why Jesus was baptized (1:9).
  • What the dove that descended upon Jesus symbolized (1:10).

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 4

In this lesson we will examine the disease of leprosy to see how that dreadful disease is symbolic of our vile flesh. It is for this reason that leprosy is mentioned in Scripture more than any other disease—over 70 times!

If we are to find freedom from such fleshly addictions as worry, fear, and anger, we need to understand how our flesh functions. We can do that by examining the disease of leprosy.

In this lesson we will see:

  • How we entered this world fleshly dominated.
  • Why the dethroning of our flesh is Christianity 101.
  • Why a child throws a tantrum.
  • How adults can throw a tantrum whenever their flesh is violated. If you find yourself throwing the occasional tantrum, by displaying such fleshly traits as anger and pouting, recommend going to our home page and clicking Under the Cloud.

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 5

In this lesson we will examine the details of the following two conversions:


MATTHEW

  • Why the Jews would have viewed Matthew as being on the bottom rung of the Hebrew social ladder.
  • Why Matthew would have lived with a poor self-image and why he would have viewed himself as a nobody.
  • How Matthew became a somebody in the eyes of God.
  • What motivated Matthew to throw a celebration party at his home after becoming a Christian.
  • Who the guest of honor was at the party.
  • Why the party was a flag that was confirmation of Matthew's conversion.
  • What Matthew took with him once he turned his back on his old world and became a follower of Christ.
  • How Jesus used that possession as a valuable tool to edify the body of Christ.
  • Why Matthew's decision to follow Jesus likely called for a bigger step of faith than required by the other disciples.

NICODEMUS

  • Why Nicodemus would have been viewed as a somebody in the Jewish community. The top of the ladder!
  • Why Nicodemus was likely experiencing sleepless nights.
  • What motivated him to come to Jesus.

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 6

"No one puts new wine into old wineskins...
But new wine must be put into
new wineskins"

Mark 2:22

The focus of this lesson can be summed up in one word—flexibility.

The Christian author William Barclay said,"The most inflexible organization in the world is churches." The spiritual leadership of Barclay's day thought, "We've always done it this way—why change?"

After his conversion the apostle Paul was constantly confronted with inflexible thinking from the religious leaders.

Moses was faced with inflexible minds. Instead of entering the Promised Land, and claiming their God-given inheritance, for forty long years Israel remained camped in the barren desert with their heels dug in—inflexible to change. As a result they experienced a substandard quality of life.

Jesus was constantly confronted with the inflexible scribes and Pharisees. For example:

  • They criticized Him for healing on the wrong day of the week.
  • They condemned Him for touching and healing a leper.
  • They became judgmental of His associating with such low-life's as a tax collector.
  • Jesus would have been criticized for bringing the gospel to the pagan country of Samaria.

In this lukewarm Church Age many in the Christian community are inflexible to change. Churches often continue flogging programs that fails to produce lasting spiritual fruit. They think, "We've always done it this way—why change? Someone once said, "If we continue doing things as we have in the past, we can expect to experience the same results as we have in the past." If we are to climb out of this lukewarm rut, and experience the abundant life Jesus promised, it will call for our being flexible—open to change!

Being flexible may mean:

  • Walking away from a pablum ministry and finding a place that serves nourishing spiritual food.
  • Longing for freedom from such addictions as worry, fear, and anger.
  • Becoming a doer of the taught Word, rather than being just a hearer (James 1:22).
  • Experiencing the full gospel by making Acts 2:36 a heart reality.
  • Discarding traditions of men that are not clearly supported by Scripture (Colossians 2:8).

If these goals are your desire then this lesson will be of value to you.

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 7

"Jesus is the Lord of
the Sabbath"

Mark 2:28

In this lesson we will see that the word Sabbath means restoration. The #1 purpose of a church is to be a place of restoration. A place where believers are strengthened so they can:

  • Be more than conquerors in the war zone (Romans 8:37).
  • Be a positive fragrance of Christ in this spiritually darkened world (2 Corinthians 2:15). To see God's formula for being a positive witness for Christ I recommend going to the home page and clicking on Witnessing.
  • Being free from living under the judgmental law of Moses (1 Timothy 1:9). For more information on the law I recommend going to our home page and clicking on the Tabernacle.
  • Experience dominion in this stress-filled world, rather than having their emotions constantly manipulated by this world and its residents. Evidence of being manipulated is when a person displays such fleshly attributes as worry, fear, and anger.

If these are your goals then this Mark Bible study lesson will be of value to you.

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 8

This lesson is about:

  • Christians displaying such spiritual fruit as peace in the midst of life's storms.
  • Showering an obnoxious person with unconditional love.
  • Displaying faith in the Bible promises.

Jesus said, "My Father is glorified when you display fruit" (John 15:8). It is interesting that He never made this statement about any other aspect of the Christian life—only about displaying Holy Spirit generated fruit.

When Jesus taught in a synagogue He had a captive audience, as it was impolite to leave the synagogue in the middle of the sermon. In this lesson we find Jesus teaching to a crowd who had gathered by the sea shore. If the people became disinterested in the sermon they could walk away without drawing attention to themselves. In order to hold the groups interest Jesus taught a parable that would have captured their attention. It was about farming.

If you have a desire to display such spiritual fruit as peace and joy, rather than having feelings of worry and fear surface whenever your flesh is challenged, then this lesson on farming will be of benefit to you.

"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and
self-control"

Galatians 5:22-23

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 9

"We walk by faith,
not by sight"

2 Corinthians 5:7

If you could only display one spiritual fruit, which one would you choose? If I was given this choice I'd select the one that this lesson focuses on—faith. Once we have faith in the Bible promises the rest of the fruits of the Spirit will flow naturally from our inner being.

In this spiritually darkened world the only reliable thing we can place faith in is the promises recorded in Scripture. The book of Hebrews says, "It is impossible for God to lie." This is a wonderful truth as it means we can place confidence in every promise recorded between the two covers of the Bible. They are bankable!

"The entirety of Your word is truth"
Psalm 119:160

A few generations back promises were generally viewed as being reliable. Today, that is no longer the case. For example:

  • Promises made by politicians were usually bankable. Today, with few exceptions, their promises are viewed as a means of getting elected. Then, once elected their campaign promises are usually quickly forgotten.
  • Job security was something that you could place faith in. Today, job security is a joke.
  • Pensions were also viewed as being bankable. Today, we see pension funds being depleted to keep the company solvent, or shifted offshore to someones bank account.

In this lesson we will see:

  • What the only spiritual activity in our life that glorifies the Lord.
  • How Satan attempts to chip away at our faith.
  • The quality of life that accompanies sight walking.
  • How the pagan residents of Jericho placed more faith in God's promises than the Israelites who departed from Egypt.
  • Why the disciples displayed fear when they were confronted with the storm.
  • Why Jesus allows the storm's of life to fall upon believers.
  • The benefit of implementing my Three Step Program whenever we are faced with a problem. For more information of the Three Step Program I recommend going to the home page and clicking on Under the Cloud.

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 10

In this lesson we will examine the following key points:

  • How Jesus demonstrated authority over the demonic world.
  • Why Christians are reluctant to share their faith. To discover God's formula for experiencing faith go to the home page and click on Faith.
  • Why Jesus spoke of Jairus' daughter as being asleep rather than referring to her as being dead.
  • Why Jesus was annoyed with the church leadership of His day.
  • How the Jews were astonished with the gospel that Jesus taught.
  • Why Jesus was ridiculed by the hometown crowd.
  • How we should respond when our witnessing is rejected by green fruit.
  • Why it was important for Jesus, and the disciples, to occasionally draw apart from the multitudes.
  • What Jesus can do with a person who hands Him the reins of his life.

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 11

"Don't let others spoil your faith and joy with their
philosophies, their wrong and shallow
answers built on men's thoughts and ideas,
instead of on what Christ has said"

Colossians 2:8

Jesus was constantly confronted with the Jewish religious hierarchy who attempted to discredit Him for not abiding by their do and don't list—denominational rules that were not supported by Scripture. Whenever a believer refuses to go along with traditional man-devised rules he can expect to receive flak from legalistic minded people.

In this lesson we will examine the following points about legalism:

  • Why Jesus labeled the Pharisees as being hypocrites. We will also see how the word hypocrite was coined (7:6a).
  • How a professing Christian can talk a good story, yet, have a distant heart relationship with Christ.
  • Finding freedom from living under the bondage of the laws of Moses and making the new commandment that Jesus gave to the Church a reality in our life.
  • What the word Corban means (Mark 7:11).
  • Why God presented Israel with the food laws recorded in Leviticus chapter eleven.
  • How Jesus came on the scene and abolished all the Jewish food laws.
  • What defiles our body.
  • Why Jesus categorized the leaven of the Pharisees, and the leaven of Herod, as being one in the same (8:15).
  • How we should respond to the question Jesus asked the disciples (8:29).
  • Why Jesus remained in the tomb three days, rather than returning home to heaven immediately after his death (8:31).
  • What the first two things Jesus did after the resurrection.

  2. The following events that took place on the Mount of Transfiguration:
  • The reason Jesus went up the mount with the three disciples.
  • Why Jesus invited two deceased Jewish dignitaries to join Him on the mount—Moses and Elijah.
  • Where Moses and Elijah had been previously residing.
  • What enabled God to announce that He was well pleased with His Son.

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 13

In this lesson we will examine the following events that took place during the earthly ministry of Christ:

  • Why a competitive spirit (pride) surfaced among the disciples.
  • How pride exists in today's Christian community and how it can contribute to such problems as church splits.
  • How Jesus used a small child to teach the disciples a lesson about eliminating pride.
  • How Jesus fulfilled the role of a servant before He fulfilled the role of being the Savior.
  • What the apostle Paul meant when he referred to himself as being a bondservant to Christ (Romans 1:1). For additional information on being a bondservant go to the home page and click on Bondservants.
  • How the disciples became critical of believers who functioned differently than they did and how Jesus responded to their criticism.
  • What Jesus actually meant when He said a Christian should remove a body part that was causing him to sin.
  • What Jesus meant when He spoke about believers being salt.
  • What causes a Christian to lose his salty flavor.
  • Why Leonardo Da Vinci showed an overturned salt container in front of Judas in his famous painting of the Last Supper.

Mark

Bible Study Lesson 14

  • How a Christian should be salty in their marriage.
  • God's formula for experiencing a successful marriage.
  • How God made males and females differently— physically and biologically.
  • How the husband and wife are to become one flesh—standing on the same side of the fence to deal with life's problems.
  • How husbands and wives complete each other.
  • How the wife's role in the marriage isn't a secondary position.
  • What the will of the Lord is for both the husband and wife.
  • How the husband and wife are to be submissive to each other.
  • The difference between a marinated marriage and a marrying of the husband and wife.
  • How we entered this world married to Adam and how we become divorced from him once we become a bride to Jesus Christ.

Mark

Bible Study Lesson 15

This lesson is about obtaining membership in the world's most unique club. The dictionary definition of a club is a group of people who have a common interest. For example, members of a golf club, or Rotary club, have a common interest. The kingdom of Christ is a club where members have a common focal point—the Lord Jesus Christ.

In this lesson we will focus on the following reasons why the kingdom of Christ is the world's most unique club:

  • It's the world's oldest functioning club, as its inception date was approximately 6,000 years ago.
  • The club will continue to exist beyond time.
  • The club President will never be replaced.
  • Membership in the club is available to all who have a desire to join. No one is excluded.
  • Every member possesses the same nationality.
  • All members are related to the President—kin.
  • There are no club dues.
  • Members cannot have their membership terminated because of violating club rules.

In this lesson we will also discover:

  • What motivated the rich young ruler to come running to Jesus (Mark 10:17).
  • Why Jesus told the man to sell all his possessions and give the proceeds to the poor.
  • Who is usually the most difficult person to reach with the gospel.
  • What Jesus meant when He talked about the "eye of the needle."

Mark

Bible Study Lesson 16

In this lesson we find Jesus returning to Jerusalem in order to be present for the annual Passover. If He was to become the fulfillment of the Old Testament Passover Feast it was appropriate that He be slain during Passover week.

"Christ, our Passover was
sacrificed for us"

1 Corinthians 5:7

In this lesson we will see:

  • Who Christ's executioner would be (not the Jews or Romans).
  • Why it was imperative for Jesus to experience a Roman execution rather than the traditional Jewish execution. For additional information I recommend going to the home page and clicking on Crucifixion.
  • Why Jesus remained in the tomb for three days rather than returning directly to heaven after His death.
  • The three prophesies Jesus had to fulfill in order to become the redeemer. The Kinsman-Redeemer page provides excellent information on this topic.
  • What was the first thing Jesus did after He returned home to heaven.
  • Why Jesus informed James and John that they couldn't be seated alongside Him on the heavenly throne, as those two seats were reserved for two special parties (10:40).
  • What the word ransom means.
  • Why Jesus rode a young donkey into Jerusalem rather than entering the city on a horse.
  • What the barren fig tree represented.

Mark
Bible Study Lesson 20

In this lesson we find Jesus and the disciples departing from the Last Supper and making their way to the Garden of Gethsemane. In this lesson we will examine the following events that took place after the Passover meal was finished:


  • Why the scribes and Pharisees felt it was necessary to send a detachment of 200 temple police to arrest one unarmed Jewish carpenter.
  • What motivated Judas to stand with the religious hierarchy rather than standing alongside Jesus.
  • The only two places a person can stand in this world and throughout eternity.

Mark

Bible Study Lesson 21

In this lesson we find Jesus becoming the fulfillment of the Genesis 3:15 prophecy about Christ's heel being bruised and becoming the fulfillment of the Old Testament Passover Feast where the death and shed blood of an innocent lamb was shed. In this lesson we will examine the following events that took place during the of Christ:

  • Why there were no Super Bowl crowds present to witness the most significant event in the history of the world.
  • At Calvary there were four different groups of people present. In this study we will see what motivated each group to attend the crucifixion.
  • A foxhole conversion.
  • Why only five Christians witnessed the execution—four women and one disciple. The question to be asked is, where were the other disciples? Where was the Hosanna crowed who praised Jesus as He made His way into Jerusalem? Where were the people He healed? Where was Lazarus? Where were the multitude that He fed?
  • When the word hyssop first appeared in Scripture and how the using of hyssop to raise vinegar to Christ's lips dovetailed with the first Bible recording of the word.
  • What Jesus meant when He made the final announcement from the cross—"It is finished."
  • It was customary for the Roman soldiers to break the legs of a person being crucified. In this lesson we will see why it was imperative that Christ's legs not be broken.

Mark

Bible Study Lesson 22

"Christ is risen from the dead,
and has become the firstfruits..."

1 Corinthians 15:20

Comments Are In:

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.

Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!

David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."

Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.

Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."

Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!

Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).

Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.

John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.

Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.

Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.

Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
