Rocks represent boundary markers. Humanity, including the Hebrew tribe in the Bible, always uses rocks to mark territory and keep others out. Jesus replaced the rock with the chalice. All are welcome to the chalice.
"Who really killed Jesus? Was it the Roman authorites or Jewish leaders?" Did you know Bible scholars hotly debate this question? This Sunday you have a set in the jury box as we use the Gospel of Mark to unravel this question and reach a surprising verdict.
Do you ever have that nagging feeling that you really AREN'T living out your Christian Faith? Is there something more Jesus asks of us that we aren't hearing? In this week's study of the Gospel of Mark we hear a call to the whole church!
