6 days ago
A lyric lodged itself in my mind a few weeks ago that I couldn't shake. It worked out okay, because it wasn't one of those cheesy advertising jingles, it was directly from Scripture. I used the song, "Son of David" by Ghost Ship to guide me to Mark 10 and a great story with more tucked in it than you would imagine. Come with me to the gates of Jericho and meet Bartimaeus. On this episode I discuss: The story of Bartimaeus - Mark 10:46-52 "Inspiration and information without personal application will never amount to transformation" - Lysa TerKeurst from her latest book, Uninvited Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture - our Bible Interaction Tool Exercises this week are: Listen to an audio version of Scripture (I use YouVersion) Repetition Read in context Slow down Ask questions My list of questions and observations from this week's story What is the context of the story? What is the significance of the city? How did Mark know Bart's name? What is significance of the name Bart chose to use to call out to Jesus? Even though Bart was was rebuked by others, he still called out Jesus stopped and called him to Himself, then the rebukers encouraged him What is the significance of throwing off his cloak...I heard a sermon once about this once The question we must all answer..."What do you want me to do for you?" (There are two "what do you want me to do for you's" in Mark 10) The answer we should all give..."Restore my sight." What did Jesus say then? What happened? What was Bart's response?
