By What Authority?

July 19, 2015 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: The Gospel of Mark

Scripture: Mark 11:27–12:12

By What Authority?
Mark 11:27–12:12
July 19, 2015


I.  The willful blindness of the religious leaders? Mark 11:27–33; Acts 17:11

II.  Unbelieving Israel: a case study. Mark 12:1–8

III.  A prediction of judgment and vindication. Mark 12:9–12; Psalm 118:22–23

IV. The lesson of the parable for Christians. Romans 11:19–22

Questions for reflection:

  • What are ways we can protect ourselves from false teaching and teachers?
  • What evidence is there for the divine authority of Jesus?
  • What lessons should we as Christians learn from the parable of the Tenants?
