Jesus as a healer and teacher - speaking
God's word. Authority.
First: Deuteronomy - Moses tells the people that the Lord has
promised to raise up a prophet from among them, who will have
God's word put into his mouth.
Psalm: 94 - O that today you would listen
to his voice, harden not your hearts / Come, ring out our joy
to the Lord / Come in, let us kneel and bend low.
Second: I Corinthians 7 - Paul compares the
responsibilities of married vs unmarried men and women - to help
the people decide how to live.
Gospel: Mark - Jesus teaches with authority
in the Synagogue: a man possessed by an unclean spirit challenges
him, and Jesus orders the spirit to leave the man.
