Rob Norman: The Gospel Of Mark | Prepare The Way

Isaiah says ‘prepare ye the way of Yahweh’… This is not just any God, not even an angel. Isaiah foretold the coming of Yahweh. Yahweh is the same God who created the heavens and earth, who rescued the Israelites from Egypt and led them through the waters of The Red Sea. This is the same Yahweh who spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, and humiliated the prophets of Baal and Asherah on mount Carmel, – ‘prepare ye the way of Yahweh’

In many respects Mark was a failed follower of Jesus. He was the subject of a major disagreement, and separation, between Paul and Barnabas in Acts 15 because he deserted the Apostles and abandoned the ministry.  All followers of Christ are failures who have been given access to the kingdom of God by grace.
