Mark 10:46-12

Instead of investigating the details of the bark on the trees (investigating verse by verse), we are pulling back to discover the landscape (chapter by chapter) as we read about the last week of Jesus' life from the triumphal entry to the resurrection. This week we heard about Jesus healing the blind Bartimaeus, the triumphal entry, the "Markan sandwich" illustration of the Fig Tree with Jesus cleansing the temple, the discussion about the resurrection with the Sadducees, the greatest commandment, Jesus' rebuke of the scribes, and finished up with the poor widow's giving all she had.
