SERVANT KING: Scribes, Sinners, and the Sabbath

Mark 2

“We are in the small, sleepy fishing village of Capernaum. A main road runs through the village. . . . There are crowds swelling about the house and inside it is jammed with people. In the center…is Jesus. His fame as a healer has spread like wildfire through the territory.” – Lloyd John Ogilvie

I. HIS AUTHORITY OVER SICKNESS

As the popularity of Jesus grew, so did the number skeptics, cynics, and critics. The Pharisees and scribes had a corner on the spiritual market – now this fresh face, this wind from heaven, is blowing through the region.

“There is an indication here that the disease might have been brought on by some ‘emotionally induced’ illness. That is, something in the man’s past or present, some attitude he harbored, some feeling he indulged, was causing the paralysis.” – Ray Steadman

II. THE ATTITUDE OF THE SCRIBES

“While they may have found Jesus intriguing, they could not find him enticing. Many of them could have talked at length of their enthusiastic anticipation of the coming Messiah and yet He walked past the drawn shade of their minds.” – William Coleman

III. HE ADDS A HATED SINNNER TO HIS DISCIPLES

IV. HIS ATTITUDE TOWARD THE SABBATH
