New Testament Reading Plan Week 3: Mark 11–15
Dig deeper in Mark 11–15 with these five prompts.
- “What political implications are included in the phrase, ‘Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David’ in Mark 11:10?” 
- In Mark 12:13–17, the Pharisees and Herodians tried to catch Jesus with a trick question. Jesus’ words in verse 17 lead us to ask, “What belongs to Caesar, and what belongs to God? Where do we see God’s image (imago Dei) and inscription? See also Genesis 1:26 and Psalm 19:1.
- How do Jesus’ commands in Mark 12:29–31 reflect the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:1–17?
- Much of Mark 13 appears in Matthew 24:1–51 and Luke 21:5–38. What’s similar? What’s different? What do you understand better about this chapter by looking at Matthew and Luke’s accounts?
- As you read Mark 14 and 15, try to put yourself in the action. What would you have thought if you were there? What sticks out to you? End by reflecting on Jesus’ suffering in our place, thanking and worshipping him for his love and sacrifice.

New Testament Reading Plan Week 2: Mark 6–10
Dig deeper in Mark 6–10 with these five prompts.
- “Mark spends much more time describing John’s death than he does describing his ministry. This story would have held special meaning for Mark’s persecuted readers, whose lives were likewise threatened because of their message. John remained faithful when persecuted. When others’ response to our faith causes us discomfort, let us remember men like John and remain faithful to God to the end.”  How do stories of persecution like John the Baptist’s encourage your faith?
- The miracle of Jesus’ feeding the 5,000 (Mark 6:30–44) also appears in Matthew 14:13–21, Luke 9:10–17, and John 6:1–14, making it one of the few stories that appear in all four Gospels. Compare each of the four accounts, and consider how they round out your understanding of this miracle.
- Throughout the Old Testament, the imagery of a sea represents chaos and relentless change. God demonstrates his power by sending Jonah into the sea (Jonah 1–2)—and then rescuing him and by parting the Red Sea (Exodus 14). The Psalms and Prophets also recount God’s power using the sea as a poetic reference to chaos and trouble (Psalms 65:7, 77:19, Isaiah 43:16). With those references in mind, what does Mark 6:45–52 show about Jesus?
- “How do you answer those who claim that Mark records two accounts of the same feeding of the crowds by Jesus in Mark 6:30–44 and 8:1–10? Given their similarity, why does Mark include both of these miracles?” 
- Regarding Mark 9:2–13: “This is the only place in the Bible where Moses and Elijah are explicitly named together. Since Moses was forbidden from entering the promised land (Num 11:10–13), the two did not minister in the same region. But there was one geographical intersection between both their ministries—another mountain, Mount Sinai (Exod 19; 1 Kings 19:8–18). Aside from Moses (and Joshua his helper), Elijah is the only other person in all of Israel’s history who went up Mount Sinai. And significantly, both Moses and Elijah witnessed a theophany on top of the mountain. If this connection is made, then the transfiguration, like many of the other narratives of Jesus’ life, is evidence that God is once again working in a way similar to how he had in the past.” What are some other places in Mark where you’ve seen God working in a similar way to how he worked in the Old Testament?

- For consider your calling, brothers:Sermon 12.13.19 1Cor 1:26-31 “Victory “ Every human heart desires victory. We want to win. What does the Bible teach us about this desire? For this desire, like all natural desires, can lead us astray. 1 or 1:26 - speaks to our need for grace to overcome boasting. What is meant here by boasting. In the Bible, it’s something of a military tactic in that it is used to psyche up the troops. Leaders use boasting to rally the troops. We tend to boast in ourselves. God wants to lead us away from boasting in ourselves. (v. 29). We are nobody v 26 with no reason to boast in ourselves. We tend to boast about our accomplishments not God’s grace. We need to boast in the Lord v. 31. It will redirect our natural desire for victory and reshape our identity so that we can rest in the Lord instead of striving for a impossible personal achievements or warped desire for victory in life that centers on ourselves rather than avid.
- I just installed the latest version of Logos from the Amazon App store on my Onyx Boox Note 10.3 eReader. Every time I start the app it askes me to login so I enter my email and password then a few seconds later it pops up again and again. It won't even let me exit the program I have to turn off my eBook reader. The previous version didn't do that. I used the same password to login to my account on the website from my desktop PC so I know the password is correct. Can anyone help? Thanks

New Testament Reading Plan Week 1: Mark 1–5
Dig deeper in Mark 1–5 with these prompts.
- Based on what you see in Mark 1, what’s the main message of the book of Mark? What words or themes do you see repeated in Mark 1–5?
- “Mark wrote his fast-paced Gospel (‘immediately’ is used 42 times by Mark, and only 19 times in the rest of the NT) to convince his readers that they must have the right confession of Jesus (that he is the Son of God) and the right response to him (committing to following him). Remembering this will help make sense of every story in the Gospel.”  Highlight or underline when you see the word “immediately,” and consider what Mark wants you to notice when he uses that word.
- Jot down an outline for Mark 2:23–3:6. What’s the key point in this section? (Remember this format, because Mark uses it often: event A, conflict A, main point of events A and B, event B, conflict B, resolution.)
- “Jesus’ miracles not only gobsmacked the locals, they propelled his fame far and wide from a tiny neighborhood around Capernaum to regions as far as Syria, Tyre and Sidon to the north, and to Idumea way to the south. And Capernaum was indispensable for his fame. Why Capernaum? The answer is simple: location. . . . Capernaum was the key (humanly speaking) to the spreading fame of Jesus: comfortable living conditions; a friendly, diverse populous; a constant flow of foreigners; and exceptional cross-country / cross-cultural connections. No wonder Jesus chose Capernaum as his headquarters! No wonder from there his fame spread and intensified like a tsunami!”  Look at Capernaum on a map of first-century Israel to see how Capernaum was key to Jesus’ ministry.
- Jesus’ healing of the bleeding woman in Mark 5:24–34 is also recorded in Matthew 9:20–22 and Luke 8:43–48. Read those accounts of this miracle, and note what’s similar and what’s different in each to round out your understanding of this story.

- Any chance 'passage list' is coming to mobile? I found a work around for now. On desktop, create passage lists [I made three with 200-300 entries each]. Then, open the notes tool and create a notebook. Give it a name that describes your entries. Then, create a new note in the notebook. Go to your passage list, right click in the body - select all [or ctrl+a]. Then back into the new note you made nestled in your notebook, paste [or ctrl+v]. Create a new note under your notebook for each passage list you want to add. This can now be accessible on your mobile phone under the notes option. Bible verses are clickable on the mobile phone as well.
