Part 19, Mark 4: 26-34 "Seeds of Patient Revolution"


Part 19, Mark 4: 26-34 Seeds of Patient Revolution This week Sean, explores two more parables, or comparisons, that Jesus used to explain the purpose of his mission and the demands of following him. On this occasion, he once again used the imagery of seeds and plants, taking things from every day life, to explain complex concepts to the relatively uneducated people that were gathering around him. On the surface of what looks like some sweet and simple stories, there lies the possibility of a radically alternative way of life, that can challenge the most oppressive of tyrants. #Parables #ParablesofJesus #GSCMC #kingdomofgod #discipleship ————————————————————— You can read the relevant bible passage, Mark 4:26-34 online at: You can also subscribe to this GSCMC 'Mark' series playlist on YouTube here:    • Marks Gospel Series   and also find 150+ additional bible reflections and stories, from various God’s Squad members around the world. _________________________________________ This presentation, and many of the previous and following ones in this series that Sean will present, includes references, quotes and research from the following sources; Meeting God in Mark, Rowan Williams, 2014.
