Dealing with Unbelief, Part 1
Mark’s gospel moves from recording four definitive victories of Jesus to the one thing He cannot overcome: unbelief. Many people were amazed, even astonished at the words and works of Jesus, however, there were those who never moved from having their attention captured to have their hearts filled with belief in the Son of God.
This is the result of contempt. The people in Jesus' hometown and the Roman rulers of the region treated Jesus with no regard, as though He were worthless to them. Their unbelief is our warning to not treat Christ nor the Bible with contempt!
