This Father’s Day Sunday, we are confronted in our passage with a desperate father, a desperate woman, a dying young child and a crushing crowd. Jesus was growing in popularity as He did miracle after miracle and the world took notice. He could hardly move because not only was their curiosity but there were also many wounded and sick in the world plagued by the curse of sin.

Imagine a lush garden of green vines and plants, but upon closer inspection there is no fruit. Along the side of the garden are dead plants, some grew more than others, but they eventually shriveled and died before they produce anything useful. While this may describe some of our attempts at gardening, this is an unsuccessful garden. Tomato plants that don’t produce tomatoes, even though they might grow tall and green, are only good to be cut down and added to the compost bin.

When most of us think of Jesus, he is a meek and mild Savior who brings comfort and peace. That’s certainly true of him, but the Gospel of Mark highlight’s Jesus’ authority and power. This is a side of Jesus we easily overlook after years of familiarity with the Bible.
The opening verses (v.1-13) set the stage for Jesus to walk into the spotlight. Jesus is identified by John the Baptist as the Messiah, the long awaited “chosen one” who was foretold by prophets of centuries past. When Jesus is baptized, God himself speaks and identifies Jesus as “my beloved son.” Immediately after being baptized, Jesus endures temptation in the desert for forty days and nights. These present Jesus as the Messiah who is both God and human. These opening verses highlight that Jesus was always God’s “Plan A.”
