(Through The Bible) – Mark: Zac Poonen (Transcript)

Here is the full transcript of Zac Poonen’s teaching on Gospel of Mark which is part of the popular series called Through The Bible.

Listen to the audio version here:


Let’s turn now to scriptures, to the Gospel of Mark. Now, there must be very good reasons why God allowed four biographies of Jesus Christ to be written, not just one consolidated one. And people who have studied these books usually have one fixed view. I think every single book and commentary I have ever seen always says, “Matthew shows Jesus as the King, Mark as the Servant, Luke as the Man and John as God.”

Matthew shows Him as a lion, Mark as an ox, Luke with a man’s face, you know the four faces in Ezekiel and Revelation, and John as an eagle. And people, since most Christians are too lazy to think, they just accept that. And since even most theologians are too lazy to think, they just accept that. And since most Indians just repeat what the Americans and the British people say, they just repeat it over here.

India has become a big echo for all that is said in the West, unfortunately. It’s almost as though God does not speak to anybody in India. He only speaks to people there, and we just got to echo what they say.

Now, I decided when I came to this book, I’m not going to stick in this rut that has been dug for hundreds of years, and I want to get out and allow the Holy Spirit to bring me some freshness and thinking in my own mind.

Now, I just mentioned that in passing. Don’t accept traditional concepts always. That is how they missed out on Jesus, who He was. They said, “the traditions of the fathers,” and that’s how they completely missed the will of God in their time. And if you’re going to be a blind follower of tradition and just an echo of what hundreds of other people are saying, you will never get what the Holy Spirit is saying to you personally.
