This is a commentary on Matthew 3, Mark 1, and Luke 3 the text for Lesson 4 in the Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families Manual for 2023. We shall meet Mark. The lesson discusses Jesus’ baptism, the temptation in the desert, and the call of some of His first disciples.
We will lay some groundwork for Jesus’ miracles and the issue of table fellowship amongst the Jews of His time. We will also discuss the issue of casting out devils and evil spirits, and what that might have meant in the context of those times and our times. pp.27
