Unveiled: The Author

Mike Butler

When we talk about getting to know Jesus, the key is seeing him clearly. The Gospel of Mark draws back the curtain to unveil the mystery that is Jesus. This week, Pastor Butler looks at the wonder of Jesus as the Author of life. Join us at CrossPointe on Sunday Mornings at 9 and 10:30. For more information, visit us at www.crosspointe.tv

Unveiled: The Author

Mark 1:21-28, NIV 2011 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. 23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, 24 “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”  25 “Be quiet!” said Jesus sternly. “Come out of him!” 26 The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.  27 The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

Jesus’ words life.

Mark 1:21-22, NIV 2011 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law.

Deuteronomy 18:15, NIV 2011 15 The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.

John 1:1-5, NIV 2011 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness,h and the darkness has not overcome it.

Jesus wrote the book on worship.

Mark 1:23-26, NIV 2011 23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, 24 “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”  25 “Be quiet!” said Jesus sternly. “Come out of him!” 26 The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek. 27 The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.”

Jesus authored all hope.

Hebrews 3:1-6, NIV 2011 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. 3 Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. 5 “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,”  bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. 6 But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.

Jesus reminds us that he is the author and we are the readers.

Mark 1:28, NIV 2011  28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.
