Pushing Back The Kingdom Of Darkness

November 7, 2010 Speaker: John Bell Series: The Gospel According to Mark

Passage: Mark 4:35–5:20

Point # 1 Jesus pushes back the Kingdom of Darkness by rebuking a storm whipped up by evil forces to impede his ministry to gentiles.
Note the fear of the disciples – both before and after the storm.

Point # 2 In the midst of total impurity, Jesus pushes back the Kingdom of Darkness by vanquishing an entire army of demons.
Note the fear of the demons before the exorcism.
Note the fear of the townspeople after the exorcism.

Point # 3 Jesus pushes back the Kingdom of Darkness by leaving behind a radically transformed missionary to testify about him.
