What does Jesus say to the church of Pergamum? Does it mean anything today?
Do you love Jesus for what he can do for you? Or do you love Jesus because of His beauty?
Jesus speaks of the last days. Unlike his disciples, he focuses not on the time or the sign. Instead, Jesus commands his disciples to be prepared and be faithful. Where is you focus as we move towards Jesus' second coming?
It may seem that all the way from Mark 11 to Mark 12:17 there are various unrelated stories but maybe with a closer look we may see a common theme in the last week before Jesus' crucifixion.
