Or at least end some very common stereotypes that are sadly true. With the knowledge from this book, we can go out and change the world, all for the glory of God. Coming from somebody who has been a Christian basically their whole life, and always been afraid of evangelizing to non-believers.

As soon as I jumped into the book I noticed a few…

    Exegetical Paper Many people view wealth as the solution to all of their problems, but in the gospel of Mark, Jesus takes another side. He calls his followers to give up all their earthly possessions and be fully dependent on him. This is a picture of our dependence on God for our eternal destiny.

    Christ into a fully human, yet fully G-d, demeanor. We see Christ 's purity and Holiness by His passionate calling to Matthew and His other disciples, and yet we are drawn to a man who appears tangible, part of the company, and fully present in the room with Matthew. Matthew himself seems taken aback as he makes a surprised gesture of pointing towards his own body as if asking Jesus to clarify if what He was saying is true – do You really want me, a tax collector and sinner, to follow your…

    Matthew and mark are parables that are common with each other in the Gospels. They talk about Jesus in a large crowds and how people will not listen to Jesus even with silence.
