Shownotes

Pastor Shaq Hager continues our series on the Gospel of Mark by focusing on Mark 1:21-28. Jesus enters a synagogue and teaches with authority, astonishing the people. A demon, possessing a person who attends the synagogue, confronts Jesus. Jesus responds to the demon by casting it out of the person and, symbolically, the synagogue. It's a story that helps us understand Jesus and authority. We'll see that Jesus is authoritative, that He challenges and deconstructs manmade and religious authorities, and that He reconstructs authority based on the ways of the Kingdom. Sometimes in order to rebuild we need to tear down.
