Mark 3:7-12 is a story in which nothing happens; the narrative of Mark is not moved forward in any significant way. It is, however, a "checkpoint," a passage where Mark takes a breather and brings together 4 themes he has and will continue to develop over the course of his gospel. In this message, Benjamin Shanks explores the 4 checkpoints of Mark 3:7-12, inviting us to reflect on where we're at with Jesus' DEATH; Jesus' LIFE; Jesus' WAY; and Jesus' IDENTITY.
