Mark 1:1-5
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  September 18, 2011

Mark declares from the outset that Jesus is the long awaited Messiah and the Son of God, a testimony backed up by the Old Testament prophets and by the preaching of John the Baptist. John was commissioned by God to prepare the way for both Christ's ministry and message. John's message included a strong emphasis on repentance, which was then evidenced by baptism (immersion).
