For session 4, C.J. Mahaney spoke. He used Mark 5:1-20. He didn’t give us a specific topic of a category for Jesus like the past 3 preachers did. C.J. gave a visual representation of Christ. Mainly his power over the world. His sovereignty. Jesus healed a man who was tormented by demons. He had compassion on this man to free him from his bondage to unclean spirits and the people of the area pleaded with Him to leave. C.J. showed us the previous event the disciples went through and their near death experience on the sea of Galilee. Then, Jesus, after this episode with the man, heals a woman, raises a girl from the dead. Mark is showing the sovereignty of God.

C.J. showed us three things this passage is trying to teach us.

  1. To Learn the unique identity of the Savior as the Son of God
  2. To remind us of our condition before conversion
  3. To encourage us to emulate the example of the man saved from demons.
