A Question the Scribes Can’t Answer
Mark 12:35–44
August 16, 2015


I. The inspiration and authority of Scripture. Mark 12:35–36

II. The transcendent, greatness of the Messiah. Mark 12:36–37; Philippians 2:9–11

III. Beware of the Scribes. Mark 12:38–40

IV. An example of true devotion. Mark 12:41–44

Questions for reflection:

  • What is meant by the inspiration of Scripture? Why is this important?
  • Psalm 110 describes the Messiah as far greater than Israel’s greatest king, David?
  • How might we reflect the greatness of Christ in our lives?
  • What are the things that Jesus points to as red flags of the Scribes falseness?
  • In what ways can we emulate the widow’s example of true devotion?
