Parables and Authority over nature

In this chapter the author Mark wants to introduce us to Jesus’ master class teaching style. Jesus used parables to teach his listeners but then when curiosity got the best of his disciples then enquired what Jesus meant by his story and then Jesus explained to them. In this session we want to learn what is at the heart of the stories Jesus told and the lessons they have for us today. We also want to continue discovering Jesus’ authority as the Messiah.


Here are basic things to know from this chapter

  • The state of your heart like the state of a ground in farming matters

  • listening and doing is important

  • God’s kingdom is not human dependent

  • God’s kingdom starts small

  • Jesus can control nature
