Jesus Stepping Into Our World
Mark 1:9-20

The Gospel of Mark specifically details the highlights of Jesus Ministry. In this passage, Pastor Joe looks at the Baptism of Jesus, His temptation by the Devil and the calling of His first disciples.

Mark 1
  1. And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.
  2. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
  3. And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
  4. And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness.
  5. And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
  6. Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
  7. And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
  8. Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
  9. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
  10. And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.
  11. And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.
  12. And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.
