The Cost Of Discipleship

Series: Mark's Easter Eggs: Stories Within Stories

February 26, 2024
Rev. Dr. Jacob Buchholz

When Jesus sends the disciples to do ministry in the Gospel of Mark, the story of their ministerial exploits is interrupted by a flashback to the death of John the Baptist. We continue our series on a unique aspect of the Gospel of Mark where one story is hidden inside of another in something called a Markan sandwich. What does Mark have to teach us about the cost of following Christ? And if the cost is so high, what do we get in return?
