Authority Over Sickness and Death

March 23, 2014 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: The Gospel of Mark

Scripture: Mark 5:21–5:43

Authority Over Sickness and Death
Mark 5:21-43
March 23, 2014


I. A humble, desperate man comes to Jesus. Mark 5:21-24

II. A sickly woman with genuine faith is healed. Mark 5:25-34

III. The power to overcome death. Mark 5:35-43

Questions for Reflection:
• Mark is showing us that Jesus is the Almighty conqueror of disease and death,
and the bringer of life. How is the world constantly seeking to persuade us to look for ‘life’
in the things of the world?
• Why do you think Jesus calls the woman to identify and explain herself publicly?
• In what areas of our lives might we be challenged by Christ to “not fear, only believe”?
• How is the raising of Jairus’ daughter a preview of things to come?
