He Saved Others

November 1, 2020 Speaker: Jordan Gowing Series: Mark | The King and the Cross

Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: Mark 15:21–15:32

In the taunt of the chief priests, we hear an astounding gospel truth: if Jesus would save others, he cannot save himself. Join us this Sunday at CrossWinds Church in Spencer as we consider the gospel from Mark 15.

Sermon Discussion Questions

  1. What is the danger of an over-familiarity with the cross in today’s culture?
  2. What is one highlight from the sermon and one question that you had after hearing the sermon?
  3. Read Mark 15:20. Why does Mark focus so little on the physical suffering of Jesus? 
  4. Read Mark 15:21–25, 29; Psalm 69:19–21; 22:7–8, 16–18. In light of these psalms, what is Mark trying to teach us about Jesus?
  5. How does Jesus’s patient endurance in his suffering serve as a model for our own?
  6. Read Mark 15:26–27; 10:37–38, 40. In what way does Pilate mock Jesus? What is the irony of his statement?
  7. Read Mark 15:29–30; John 1:1, 14. In what way do the crowds mock Jesus? What is the irony of their derision?
  8. Read Mark 8:11–12; 15:31–32. What are the stipulations the religious authorities put on belief? In what ways do we—like the religious authorities—give God a list of demands for our full obedience?
  9. What is the main point of this passage? How should it transform the way we live this week?
