The Heavenly Meal

Study & Share Insert:
...#1 This is the only miracle in all four Gospels. Compare & contrast the accounts. What stands out to you? What new details do you notice? If you were on a jury, how well would these four witnesses convince you it happened as they testified? See Matthew 14:14-21; Mark 6:34-44; Luke 9:11-17

...#2 We might say that King Herod has a guilty conscience. What connections do you find with John the Baptizer’s work (1:1-11, 14, 6:27-29)? What about Elijah (v15; 1 Kings 17:8-24, 18:17-18, 19:8-10, 21:11-19)?

To Heal
Mark 5:21-24a, 35-43
To us, death is the end; to Jesus, it’s only sleeping

Current Series:
Power of God...
The Power of God is in the name of Jesus

Study & Share Insert:
...#4 It’s often said that Christians need not fear death. What did Jesus teach (v35) this crowd? In what way do the following confirm this saying? See v39 above; Matthew 27:52; John 11:11, 13; Acts 7:60, 13:36; 1 Corinthians 11:30, 15:6, 18, 20, 51; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-15; Revelation 14:13

To Heal
Mark 5:24b-34
An intimate healing encounter, God’s power comes through human touch

Current Series:
Power of God...
The Power of God is in the name of Jesus

Study & Share Insert:
...#3 When Jesus says “your faith has made you well (v34)” he doesn’t mean the woman caused her own healing by some inward power of her own. Her faith is that which trusts in Jesus to receive his good gifts. How is her faith like your own- especially as you consider the sacraments?  See Small Catechism: Baptism, Office of the Keys, Lord’s Supper; SC available bookofconcord.org

Storm vs. Calm
Mark 4:35-41
Perhaps we speak too soon when asking, “Hey God! Don’t you care?”

Current Series:
A Contrasting Kingdom
The Kingdom of God stands whole; it is not divided into parts

Study & Share Insert:
...#2 What would changing the first reading to Jonah 1:1--2:1 add to (or subtract from) your insights about the Gospel reading? What happens if you compare throwing Jonah overboard to Jesus’ death (cf. Matthew 12:38-41)? What about using Proverbs 30:1-5? See also Psalms 104:3, 135:7
