Term 1 2020
The Servant King
This term we take a fresh look at Mark’s biography of Jesus. Mark wants us to understand that Jesus is God’s chosen saviour king who gives his life as a ransom price for us. A leader who genuinely serves his people is rare. Jesus serves us by dying for us. Mark points us back to the Cross as the ultimate demonstration of the love of God for people who have turned away from him. He invites us to share the
assessment of the Roman Centurion who watches Jesus die and says “Surely this man was the Son of God.” This assessment is vindicated by Jesus’ resurrection victory over death.
