The Jesus of Mark's Gospel

Jesus and Politics: give to Caesar what is his, give to God what is his.

Jesus and Sacrifical Generosity: a widow who gives away her last penny is to be honored more then a woman who gives away ten percent of her income.

Jesus and Ophthamology: people who are blind to Jesus receive new sight when they believe what he says about reality.

Jesus and Wealth: too many possessions can impede your return from exile.

Jesus and Religious Leaders: beware when the longing for power and prestige replace your longing to return home to God.
