The Authority of Jesus Christ (Mark 1:21-28)

Tony FelichTony Felich, January 30, 2011
Part of the Exposition of The Gospel of Mark series, preached at a Morning Worship service

Jesus demonstrates his full authority early in his ministry which should give his messengers (the Church) great confidence about Kingdom-building!

Jesus demonstrated His authority:

I. By where He went (21)
II. By how and what He said (22,27)
III. By the power He displayed (23-26)
IV. By how He was recognized (22-24, 28)

Mark 1:21-28

21 And they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and was teaching. 22 And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes. 23 And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, 24 “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God.” 25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” 26 And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying out with a loud voice, came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” 28 And at once his fame spread everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee. (ESV)
