Not What You'd Expect
Passage: Mark 6:14–6:29
In Mark 6:14-29 we finally learn what happened to John the baptist. This flashback is sandwiched in-between the sending & return of the 12 disciples, and serves as an example of the cost of discipleship.
This narrative, which includes pain, providence, and the continued expansion of the Gospel, will help us answer questions like... Is Jesus the expected one, or should we look for another? Is the path of faithful ministry worth the cost?
