The Famous One 10-20-02
21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
INTO: We have here Jesus starting out his ministry of preaching to the people the message that is still relevant for today,
15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
This message is indeed needed today just as much as it has ever been because today there are....
• over 20 major religions in the world.
• Many believers are budhists, hindues, musslims and ect.
• Many look to other people and other ways to get to heaven.
Today there are those who are worshipping the sun, moon, stars, trees, plants, animals, all of creation, but not the creator.
There are those looking to and worshiping other men and false gods.
These people are people are believing in something or someone but they are not believing upon the famous one.
As you read along in the book of Mark you find Jesus calling out ordinary men to follow him, and then we come to our text today, were we find Jesus teaching in the synagogue and while he is there he does the miraculous causing the evil spirits to obey him. This amazed the people who were there and just like people, when they left they told of what this man named Jesus had just done. The bible says that immediately his fame spread abroad, and that is what I want to share with you this morning, THE FAMOUS ONE.
1. You see there never has nor ever will be any one man more famous the God Man Jesus Christ. The event of Christ’s life literally split time.—B.C. and A.D.
And you can look on the internet and see thousands upon thousands possible millions of websites that in some way deal with Jesus.
You will find more books written about this man named Jesus than about another man that has ever lived.
He is so famous that even our gov. recognizes him. And the media recognizes him.
But I have a question for you this morning, do you recognize him, who he really is. Do you now of him or do you know him?
I’m not talking about yes I go to church so, I do know who he is.
• No, what I’m talking about is....
• Right now my body it hurts, but I know Him
