Trials In The Wilderness (Mark 1:12-13)

The Gospel of Mark is giving us pictures of who Jesus is so that we will believe and follow him. In Mark 1:9-11 we see the baptism of Jesus pictured as his coronation. Jesus is declared the Beloved Son, the Savior, and the King in the baptism event. Following the declaration of Jesus as God’s Son and the inauguration of his public ministry, Jesus is not treated to a royal reception or celebration. Instead, Jesus is appointed by the Spirit for a much different task: a meeting with Satan in the wilderness.

Intercession For The Transgressors (Exodus 33)

Moses has gone up Mount Sinai to make intercession for the people of Israel because of their grave sin of creating a gold calf. God has relented from the disaster that the people deserve for their rejection of God and rebellion against God. Now we might think that everything is good now and we can continue on with Israel going to the promised land. But this is not the case. Turn to Exodus 33:1-3.

The Beloved Son (Mark 1:9-11)

Mark’s gospel has an emphasis on showing the reading audience who this Jesus is. The first eight verses of Mark focused on the anticipation of Jesus’ arrival. Remember that the gospel opens calling for people to prepare the way for the king’s arrival. Get your hearts ready by confessing your sins because the mightier One is coming who will baptize with the Holy Spirit. One question that we have when we come to the baptism of Jesus is why was he baptized? The answer is in verse 9 as we see the king arrive for his royal coronation ceremony. Open your copies of God’s word to Mark 1:9-11 to see this coronation scene.
