Mark: Lesson 5

Lesson text: Mark 2:13-28
This lesson covers the three central passages in Mark’s early section on the growing animosity toward Jesus on the part of the Jewish leaders. Jesus calls Matthew to be a disciple, after which they dine with tax collectors and “sinners.” The Pharisees then ask Jesus why He and his disciples do not practice fasting. Finally, the question of the Sabbath comes to the forefront, and Jesus makes its purpose clear.
