A great sermon by Kevin Looper on Mark 5. Jesus returns to his home base Capernaum to find massive crowds gathered and a respected religious professional in desperate straits. The man pleads with Jesus to come and heal his daughter, even though association with Jesus was at this time risky for religious professionals reputations and careers.
Jesus immediately say yes to the request but an obstacle, in the form of yet another desperate person, prevents him from reaching the girl in time.
This sermon provides fascinating biblical background, a revealing look at Jesus’s character, and solid hope for people today.
