Mark 5:21-6:6a

  1. These three incidents all emphasize the same necessity for any who would enjoy the experience of Christ’s saving power. What is it?
    Why is it sometimes lacking?
    What must it resist?
  2. Why were the disciples puzzled by the question of Jesus (5:30, 31)?
    Why did Jesus wait for a trembling women to speak in public before a crowd?
    What had she to give which no-one else there possessed?
    Do you possess it, and are you giving it – particularly before people who think that contact with Christ makes no difference?

Note. 5:30,31. ;Who?’: this word is in the singular, i. e., ‘What one person?’
