The Authority of the Anointed One

October 8, 2023 Speaker: John Bell Series: The Gospel According to Mark

Passage: Mark 1:14–39

 The authority of the “Anointed One” (Christ/Messiah) is demonstrated by . . .


  1. Jesus bringing the kingdom near in his “good news” ministry (14-15)


  1. Jesus calling his disciples to himself – a call rooted in his messianic authority (16-20)
  • Jesus seeks his own disciples.
  • Jesus is the subject of the call to discipleship – “Come, follow me.”
  • Discipleship is a call to service – “I will send you out to fish for people.”
  • There is no special preparation for discipleship.
  • Discipleship is costly.


  1. Jesus’ teaching, healing, and exorcisms (21-39)
