We’re seeing what ignoring the Word of God allows in a person’s sin nature.  Herod’s sin led to irrationality and fault (vv. 14–16), inconsistency of faith (vv. 17–20), enticements of flesh (vv. 21–25), and iniquity and futility (vv. 26–29).

Sermon Notes
I.Introduction This is the only section in Mark that does not focus on Jesus Christ.  You will remember that John the Baptist is the forerunner to Christ, and commentaries point out here that John is also a type of Christ.  John preached repentance, like Christ.  And like Christ, John the Baptist faces persecution and death for it.  That’s because this story about Herod is about sin. 
We are looking backward, but not necessarily that far backward.  Herod’s shift in focus to Christ happens becaus…

Prayer has the effect of bringing us into God’s work.  Just like in the sending of Isaiah (Isaiah 6:1–8), the ones with the Lord are about to be sent on a mission.  In Matthew 10, Luke 9, and here in Mark 6, we have the commissioning of the twelve to labor in the harvest mission.  We see them sent out with an their objective (v. 7), and then we’ll see their operation (vv. 8–11), and finally, their obedience (vv. 12–13).  In this, we will see some implications for our own service.

This week, we are looking at how unbelief operates.  More to the point, we’ll see how unbelief operates among supposed believers.  So, we are examining the unbelief of false believers.

What do we see?  First, unbelief causes false believers to be scandalized by Christ (vv. 1–4).  Second, unbelief causes false believers to be separated from Christ (vv. 5–6).  Let’s start our examination.

Sermon Notes: I.Introduction Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen some of the most incredible miracles in Scripture.  Jesus has calmed the storm that the disciples saw as their death.  He casts out the legion of demons from the man that no one could bind.  He heals a malady that no physician could heal.  He raises Jairus’s daughter from the dead.  Jesus Christ alone performs …
