Sermon Notes

Throughout the book of Mark we’ve seen Jesus use a number of very useful
teaching tools; we’ve seen Him use signs and symbols, proverbs and parables, and today we shall see Him employ one more: the paradox.  A paradox takes 2 normal contradictory ideas or concepts and links them together in a single new thought.  Jesus will employ 4 paradox in this passage to teach us necessary Kingdom truth.
