Series: Servant King
Servant King - John the Baptist
May 16, 2021 | Daron Adkison
John and Jesus both appeared as a result of divine providence. The book of Mark shows how God fulfilled his covenant with Israel by providing a type of King unlike any other before. A King who has all authority, but who also serves the people to become their Messiah.

Plan to join us as we dive in to the gospel of Mark. Even though it is the shortest of the four gospels, it contains more miracles of Jesus than the other gospels.
Mark is a book of motion and urgency, focusing more on the actions of Jesus than His teachings. Mark gives us unique glimpses into the emotions of Jesus and how He moves quickly to meet needs around Him. Forty percent of the book is about the last week of Jesus’ life.
The purpose of Mark’s writing was to encourage the Gentile church in Rome, who was undergoing tremendous suffering and persecution. Jesus is seen as the Suffering Servant Savior/King who is able to identify with us in our lowest moments. Jesus is the one who still speaks, acts and delivers in the midst of our crises today.
