Episode 72 – Mark 6:53-7:30

After once again mingling with the people and healing various afflictions, Jesus gets to go to another dinner party with the Pharisees, who use the opportunity to criticize the disciples’ personal hygiene (and then some). After putting them in their place, Jesus heads up North and meets a woman with a demon-afflicted daughter, and shows the disciples what real faith looks like.

In the Inquisition, Thomas asks Pastor to draw a distinction between legality and morality, and Pastor asks Thomas to respond to the idea that everyone needs to get out there and preach.

Episode 71 – Mark 6:7-52

Things start off nice with Jesus sending out the disciples to heal and teach in various and sundry towns. Then Mark throws in a little flashback to bring us up to speed on our Lord’s cousin John, and wouldn’t you know it if we don’t feel a little sympathy for Herod in the mix. Then we see the disciples coming back from their journeys, and Jesus teaching them a little lesson in the form of feeding over 5,000 people! And as if that wasn’t enough, he walks on water to boot.

In the Inquisition, we spent the entire time discussing the recent Planned Parenthood revelation from various angles.

Episode 70 – Mark 5:14-6:6

In this episode we wrap up things with Legion, and discuss how the healed man and the townspeople react differently to the events of chapter 5 so far. Then we move back across the sea to where Jairus’ daughter is in a pickle – but before Jesus can help her he has to help another daughter altogether. Then we look at Jesus’ reception in Nazareth by those who knew him in diapers.

In the Inquisition, Thomas asked Pastor how to react to the environmental hubbub (will we all die as popsicles, or as crispy critters? No one knows!) in the news. Then Pastor asks Thomas about words that are thrown at Christians by those outside the faith, whose users clearly don’t know how to define.

Episode 69 – Mark 4:21- 5:13

After some more parables, things kick up a notch in Mark. We get Jesus on the sea in one heck of a storm, from the disciples’ perspective, but a mere annoyance to the guy who tells the wind and waves when to shut up. Then we launched into the story of “Legion”, taking special care to note what a freaky thing the whole ordeal actually is. Unfortunately, we had to call it a day before getting into the fallout from the Legion episode, which means next week’s show will be fun indeed!

In the Inquisition, Pastor asked Thomas how to respond to someone who think’s they sin too much to come to Church, and what his favorite set-up is for apologetics. Then, Thomas asks Pastor what it means to be “on the right side of history”.

Episode 68 – Mark 3:22-4:20

In this episode of our journey through Mark, we discuss the notion of “demons casting out demons”, and look at how the family of Christ is (to this point) embarrassed by his escapades and discussions with the Pharisees. We also discuss parables, and dig into the parable of the sower.

In the Inquisition, we talked about the Supreme Court decision of gay marriage, and how to talk to someone who has been hurt by those in the church.
