Sermon Summary - Sunday 14 February 2021

Main Bible passage:  Mark 5:1-13

The disciples are heavily shaken after seeing Jesus calm a storm. But now on shore the problems continue when a mentally ill man runs to Jesus from the cemetery. However, Jesus is not intimidated either by the threat of uncleanness or violence. It’s the man who feels threatened! Or, rather, the demon who is abusing him and who claims Jesus has no jurisdiction outside of Judea. Yet, Jesus continues to speak with divine authority, demanding that the army of demons no longer hurt the man but leave him alone. Then, to save the man, Jesus allows the demons to switch to a herd of pigs who immediately go crazy and are drowned. Once more the disciples are forced to see the unique nature of this man they call ‘Rabbi’.
