Easter 3 – Mark 2:18-22
Sermon Summary: The topic of fasting was a spark that igniting a discussion on the difference between the Old and New Covenants. Jesus capitalized on this opportunity to declare proof of His Messiahship. He challenged the Jewish desire to hand onto old traditions at the expense of the present fulfillment of God’s Old Testament requirements. Jesus made it clear that a change was happening - that change was the long-awaited completion that the Savior of mankind would bring.
