Mark 11:1–11 – “Glory Bound” – J. P. Kang
1. God works in disruptive, powerful, and unexpected ways through Jesus in Mark (perhaps this is why the lion is most often associated with this Gospel). In what ways does Jesus move surprisingly and providentially in your life?
2. The last half of the Gospel of Mark (starting in 8:22) focuses on Jesus’ brief journey to Jerusalem and his suffering, death, and resurrection there. How does 11:1–11 help you understand more fully the “good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (Mark 1:1)?
3. When you consider the example of Jesus’s life in Mark from baptism to resurrection, where are you in following in his footsteps? How does the hope of glory, in both this life and in the world to come, help you as you cope with the struggles of daily living?
