Day Seven: Wednesday, February 21

Mark 3:13-19

Jesus went up onto the mountain, and called to himself those whom he wanted, and they went to him. He appointed twelve, designating them apostles, that they might be with him, and that he might send them out to preach, and to have authority to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons.

These are the twelve he appointed: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); James the son of Zebedee; and John, the brother of James, (whom he called Boanerges, which means, Sons of Thunder); Andrew; Philip; Bartholomew; Matthew; Thomas; James, the son of Alphaeus; Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot; and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

COMMENTARY
Jesus chose these twelve for the specific purpose that they might be with him and that he might extend his mission through them. The promise of a future ministry is fulfilled initially in the mission of the Twelve to the Galilean villages (chapter 6:713), but finds its wider significance in the apostolic mission after the resurrection. These two phases of mission were made possible through Jesus’ free choice of these twelve and his preparation of them for their task. Their relationship to Jesus explains their existence and their authority…Mark devotes primary attention to the presence of the disciples with Jesus and their preparation for mission. Jesus’ private instruction of the disciples is particularly prominent in the second half of the Gospel, but this facet of mutual relationship between Jesus and the Twelve begins almost at once. Being with Jesus qualified the Twelve to bear witness to him and to participate in his distinctive ministry of proclamation and the overthrow of demonic power. The promise given to the Twelve is that they will share in the power of the Kingdom of God which breaks through to people with the coming of Jesus.
(William E. Lane, The Gospel of Mark, p. 133)

Day Six: Tuesday, February 20

Mark 3:112

Jesus entered again into the synagogue, and there was a man there who had his hand withered.  They watched him, whether he would heal him on the Sabbath day, that they might accuse him.  He said to the man who had his hand withered, “Stand up.”  He said to them, “Is it lawful on the Sabbath day to do good, or to do harm? To save a life, or to kill?” But they were silent.  When he had looked around at them with anger, being grieved at the hardening of their hearts, he said to the man,“Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was restored as healthy as the other. The Pharisees went out, and immediately conspired with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.

Jesus withdrew to the sea with his disciples, and a great multitude followed him from Galilee, from Judea, from Jerusalem, from Idumaea, beyond the Jordan, and those from around Tyre and Sidon. A great multitude, hearing what great things he did, came to him. He spoke to his disciples that a little boat should stay near him because of the crowd, so that they wouldn’t press on him. For he had healed many, so that as many as had diseases pressed on him that they might touch him. The unclean spirits, whenever they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, “You are the Son of God!” He sternly warned them that they should not make him known.

COMMENTARY
The story that is set in the synagogue, where a man with a shriveled hand comes to Jesus, provides an important insight into what mattered to Jesus. When his question about whether the Sabbath is for doing good or evil is met by silence from those who are looking to accuse Jesus, we are told he looked at them in anger and was deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts. “The anger of Jesus manifests both his true humanity as one who shows human emotion, and Jesus as God’s representative who reveals God’s wrath. Hardness of heart is a Markan theme. Like God, Jesus grieves over the lack of perception of what God is doing in their midst. When Jesus commands the man to stretch out his hand, Jesus neither touches the man, nor pronounces any words of healing, nor does anything else that could be considered work on the Sabbath. On one level, this could be considered mere human cleverness. Mark’s point, however, is that even in the absence of specific evidence that would convict him; his opponents nonetheless decide to destroy him. As at his final trial, they had already made up their minds that he must be killed and were only looking for a pretext to carry out their decision.”
(M. Eugene Boring and Fred B. Craddock, The People’s New Testament Commentary, p. 116)

Sew Good Souls – Dress a Girl

We are having our last “Dress a Girl” (DAG) workshop on Saturday, March 3rd from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. So far we have made 32 dresses! If you are a sewer, we would love to have you join us along with your sewing machine. In first quarter of 2019 we will resume the DAG project.

On Saturday, April 7th we are starting our second quarter sewing mission: “Quilts Beyond Borders.” We will need your hands for ironing and cutting fabric, and sewers and sewing machines for sewing straight stitches. Hope to see you there.

Science Wizard – “Out of this World” Activities

Roxanne Tisch, our very own “Science Wizard”, will host a special program for children and their families on Saturday, February 24th from 3 to 5 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. Many “out of this world” activities have been planned; come and explore with us and be prepared to be amazed. Also be prepared to be messy! A mid-afternoon snack will also be provided.

One Ton of Food with a Ton of Love

The Deacons are challenging the congregation to bring in ONE TON OF FOOD for the Jonnycake Center. We are about half way there.

The Jonnycake Center has a great need for food during the winter when people experience high heating bills and may have reduced work hours. This is a time when employers cut back the number of workers they need or eliminate seasonal jobs, making winter a time of real hardship for many. Donations to the Jonnycake Center around the holidays are wonderful but diminish afterwards. If we could bump up our contribution during this period, it would be most welcome.

Let’s show our Christian love by bringing ONE TON OF FOOD by Valentine’s Day (or shortly thereafter!) Non-perishable food only. Please place your donation on the shelves at the back of Fellowship Hall. The Deacons will weigh it and keep track of our awesome total.

Thank you in advance,
The Deacons

PS: If you are reading this and are wondering how you can afford your food, PLEASE speak with Pastor Wayne for confidential help.

Day Five: Monday, February 19

Mark 2:18-18

 John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting, and they came and asked Jesus, “Why do John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples don’t fast?”

 Jesus said to them, “Can the groomsmen fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they can’t fast.   But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day.   No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, or else the patch shrinks and the new tears away from the old, and a worse hole is made.   No one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and the wine pours out, and the skins will be destroyed; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins.”

 He was going on the Sabbath day through the grain fields, and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of grain.  The Pharisees said to him, “Behold, why do they do that which is not lawful on the Sabbath day?”

 He said to them, “Did you never read what David did, when he had need, and was hungry—he, and those who were with him?   How he entered into God’s house at the time of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the show bread, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests, and gave also to those who were with him?”  He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.   Therefore the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

COMMENTARY
Jerry Irish uses a paraphrase of the answer Jesus gives when he is asked, “Look, why are your disciples doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?” The paraphrase is spot on. “Because they are hungry.” Irish continues, “Providing basic human necessities, food in this case, trumps religious practice. As in Matthew 25, true righteousness is associated with feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, welcoming the stranger, clothing the naked, caring for the sick, and visiting the prisoner (Matthew 25:35,36). The unavoidable revelation in today’s reading from mark is that keeping the Sabbath may deepen our awareness of God and thus heighten our awareness of human need and our own role in meeting that need. The more fully our actions are in response to God, the more fully those actions will benefit our hungry neighbors. On the other hand, keeping the Sabbath in a legalistic manner may inhibit that very divine-human interaction. As with any religious practice, what was meant to enhance our relation with God and neighbor can become idolatrous and inhumane.”

Day Four: Sunday, February 18

Mark 2:1-17

When Jesus entered again into Capernaum after some days, it was heard that he was in the house. Immediately many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even around the door; and he spoke the word to them. Four people came, carrying a paralytic to him. When they could not come near to him for the crowd, they removed the roof where he was. When they had broken it up, they let down the mat that the paralytic was lying on. Jesus, seeing their faith, said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”

But there were some of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak blasphemies like that? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

Immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, said to them, “Why do you reason these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to tell the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven;’ or to say, ‘Arise, and take up your bed, and walk?’ But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic— “I tell you, arise, take up your mat, and go to your house.”

He arose, and immediately took up the mat, and went out in front of them all; so that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”

He went out again by the seaside. All the multitude came to him, and he taught them. As he passed by, he saw Levi, the son of Alphaeus, sitting at the tax office, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he arose and followed him.

He was reclining at the table in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners sat down with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many, and they followed him. The scribes and the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with the sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why is it that he eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?”

When Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are healthy have no need for a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

COMMENTARY
In the story of the paralyzed man whose friends bring him to Jesus, “Jesus’ response to
their faith was the unexpected statement, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven!’ The pronounce-
ment was startling because it seemed inappropriate and even irrelevant to the immediate
situation. It is intelligible, however, against the background provided by the Old Testa-
ment where sin and disease, forgiveness and healing are frequently interrelated concepts.
Healing is conditioned by the forgiveness of God, and is often the demonstration of that
forgiveness. (See II Chronicles 7:14; Psalm 103:3; Isaiah 19:22; 38:17; 57:18) In a num-
ber of texts healing and forgiveness are interchangeable terms (Psalm 41:4, ‘heal me, for I
have sinned against thee’; Jeremiah 3:22 and Hosea14:4) Healing is a gracious movement
of God into the sphere of withering and decay which are the tokens of death at work in a
person’s life. It was not God’s intention that humans should live with the pressure of death
upon them. Sickness, disease and death are the consequence of the sinful condition of all
human beings. Consequently every healing is a driving back of death and an invasion of
the province of sin.

That is why it is appropriate for Jesus to proclaim the remission of
sins. It is unnecessary to think of a corresponding sin for each instance of sickness; there
is no suggestion in the narrative that the paralytic’s physical suffering was related to a spe-
cific sin or was due to hysteria induced by guilt. Jesus’ pronouncement of pardon is the
recognition that humans can be genuinely whole only when the breach occasioned by sin
has been healed through God’s forgiveness of sins.”
(William Lane, The Gospel of Mark: The New International Commentary on the New Testament, p. 94)

Day Three: Saturday, February 17

Mark 1:29-45

 Immediately, when they had come out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.  Now Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and immediately they told him about her.  He came and took her by the hand, and raised her up. The fever left her immediately, and she served them.  At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to him all who were sick, and those who were possessed by demons.  All the city was gathered together at the door.  He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. He didn’t allow the demons to speak, because they knew him.

 Early in the morning, while it was still dark, he rose up and went out, and departed into a deserted place, and prayed there.  Simon and those who were with him searched for him.  They found him and told him, “Everyone is looking for you.”

He said to them, “Let’s go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because I came out for this reason.”  He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out demons.

 A leper came to him, begging him, kneeling down to him, and saying to him, “If you want to, you can make me clean.”

 Being moved with compassion, he stretched out his hand, and touched him, and said to him, “I want to. Be made clean.”  When he had said this, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean.  He strictly warned him, and immediately sent him out,  and said to him, “See you say nothing to anybody, but go show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing the things which Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.”

 But he went out, and began to proclaim it much, and to spread about the matter, so that Jesus could no more openly enter into a city, but was outside in desert places. People came to him from everywhere.

COMMENTARY
The reader of the Gospel soon learns that the crowds at Capernaum create a problem for
Jesus’ ministry as well. He did not come to settle in the town as a local healer and holy
man, but to preach throughout the region. Leaving Peter’s house in the darkness well be-
fore dawn, Jesus returns to a deserted place to pray. Because there are no deserts around
Capernaum, translations often resort to speaking of “a lonely place”. Such adaptations
mask the obvious parallel with the temptation story. During that episode, Jesus’ special
status as Son of God is underlined by the fact that angels minister to him. Mark does not
need to specify what Jesus withdraws to pray about in such examples. They clearly indi-
cate that Jesus comes to do God’s will, not to seek his own advantage or popularity. After
Simon and the other disciples pursue him to bring him back to the crowds at Capernaum,
Jesus insists that he must go and repeat his preaching and healing in the rest of Galilee.
(Pheme Perkins, The Gospel of Mark, The New Interpreter’s Bible, p.543, 544)

Day Two: Friday, February 16

Mark 1:14-28

Now after John was taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Good News of God’s Kingdom, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and God’s Kingdom is at hand! Repent, and believe in the Good News.”

 Passing along by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you into fishers for men.”

 Immediately they left their nets, and followed him.  Going on a little further from there, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John, his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets.  Immediately he called them, and they left their father, Zebedee, in the boat with the hired servants, and went after him.  They went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught.  They were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes.  Immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, saying, “Ha! What do we have to do with you, Jesus, you Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are: the Holy One of God!”

 Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”

 The unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.  They were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching? For with authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him!” The report of him went out immediately everywhere into all the region of Galilee and its surrounding area.

COMMENTARY
William Abraham writes this regarding the story of the fishermen leaving their nets and boats to follow Jesus. “In responding in this manner we have very little to rest on beyond the word an d call of Jesus. There are no external intellectual props, no extended seminars to weigh the matter carefully, and no prior testimony to trust. We are confronted with the naked word of Jesus, and we are given an ultimatum that we can accept or refuse. The starkness of the first responses to Jesus is almost terrifying. These first disciples hear his call to follow him and drop everything to respond. Of course, this is a special calling for to them will be entrusted the keys of the kingdom and the awesome responsibility to hand on its treasures to the world and to future generations. Yet that same call and that same response echo down the ages to all who hear the good news of the arrival of God’s kingdom in history.”

(William J. Abraham, The Lectionary Commentary: The Third Readings: The Gospels, p. 174, 175.)

Day One: Thursday, February 15

cross_13347acMark 1:1-13
The beginning of the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in the prophets,

“Behold, I send my messenger before your face,
who will prepare your way before you:
the voice of one crying in the wilderness,
‘Make ready the way of the Lord!
Make his paths straight!’ ”

John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching the baptism of repentance for forgiveness of sins. All the country of Judea and all those of Jerusalem went out to him. They were baptized by him in the Jordan river, confessing their sins. John was clothed with camel’s hair and a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild honey.He preached, saying, “After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and loosen. I baptized you in water, but he will baptize you in the Holy Spirit.”

In those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.  Immediately coming up from the water, he saw the heavens parting, and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.  A voice came out of the sky, “You are my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

Immediately the Spirit drove him out into the wilderness. He was there in the wilderness forty days tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals; and the angels were serving him.

Meditation: George Buttrick, the great Harvard teacher of preachers, used to say that every preacher, just before entering the pulpit, should think, “I have wonderful news to tell these people.” So Mark begins with good news—the most natural translation of the word we usually render gospel. “The beginning of the good news of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God.”

Whether this is the title or the first line of what follows, every word counts, and most of
what follows is already here summarized. Beginning contains a suggestive ambiguity and
a dramatic implicit reference. The ambiguity:  At an obvious level, beginning refers to the
fact that this sentence is the first of the story that will follow. But this opening also serves,
formally or informally, as the title of the whole book, so this first word invites us to think
that the whole story that follows is a beginning. Indeed, when we get to the last sentence, it will turn out that Mark really has no ending: it opens to the future, challenging its audi-
ence to continue the story. A book with beginning its title warns us right at the start not to expect closure at the end.

(William C. Placher, Mark: A Theological Commentary on the
Bible, p. 13.)

Commentary for Monday, March 6

cross_13347acDay Five: Monday, March 6, Matthew 4:12-25

“Here comes the kingdom of heaven!” The word I have rendered ‘here comes,’ has exercised many interpreters. Does it mean the kingdom is near, or does it mean the kingdom is present? Does it suggest a future or a present kingdom? It means both: it is on its ways, it is just about to break in, in fact it is breaking in, in some ways, as Jesus’ very words are spoken—‘here comes!’ The translation ‘here comes’ keeps the kingdom from being a static object either in heaven (is near) or on earth (is here); it protects the kingdom from the desecration of being so present it can be taken for granted and from the irrelevance of being so future it doesn’t matter… ‘Here comes the kingdom’ means the kingdom is breaking in right now through Jesus’ person and Word like a great landslide or like lightning from heaven. The kingdom is vital, alive, moving, and breaking in.” (Dale Bruner, “The Christbook”, p. 123.)
