Mark: Lesson 23

Lesson text: Mark 10:1-16
As Jesus and his disciples head for Jerusalem, He is challenged by the Pharisees. This time, they confront Him regarding His position on divorce. Jesus presents God’s ideal for marriage, which precludes divorce. Later the disciples ask Jesus to explain this further. He tells them that divorcing a spouse and remarrying is an act of adultery. At this point people begin to bring their children to Jesus for His blessing. The disciples attempt to turn the children away. This displeases Jesus. He then uses the children as an object lesson on who will be accepted into the kingdom of God.
