God in the Dock
Passage: Mark 2:18–3:6
Jesus fulfills Old Testament prophesy, but explodes Jewish expectations – thus leading to his murder on the cross.
Example # 1 Jesus claims to be the divine bridegroom of Old Testament scripture (18-22)
Example # 2 Jesus claims to be Lord of the Sabbath - a prerogative of God alone. (2:23-3-6)
