Jesus and His Abundant Kingdom

  • by

Julia Allan walks us through Mark 7:24-30 as we continue our study of the Gospel of Mark. Jesus, having retreated to an unlikely city – Tyre, is encountered by a Gentile woman who asks Him to heal her daughter. Jesus responds in a manner that to our modern ears and hearts sounds entirely unlike Jesus. In fact, it’s a passage that Christians might want to skip over because it’s difficult to explain Jesus’ response. Julia helps uncover the ways that Jesus responds with kindness and gentleness to the woman and demonstrates that His Kingdom is one marked by abundance, not scarcity.
