Identity, Mission, Call

ReVerse Passage:  Mark 1:1-15; 6:14-29; 11:27-33 (day 4)
In Christianity Explored by Rico Tice, three great themes are identified in Mark:  1) Who is Jesus? (Jesus’ Identity)  2) Why did He come? (Jesus’ Mission)  3) What does He require of His followers? (Jesus’ Call).  As you read through Mark, watch for each of these themes and mark the verses in your Bible that explain His Identity, His Mission, and His Call.  In Mark 1:1-11, there are three verses that identify one of these themes…verse 1 gives us information on who Jesus is (Identity).  Verse 8 tells us what His mission was…to baptize with the Holy Spirit.  Verse 11 again gives us His identity:  “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”  It is important for each of us to clearly understand each of these themes in Mark.  A misunderstanding of any one of them will give us a distorted view of the true gospel.  Enjoy your study!
