The Mountain of Transfiguration

CrossPointe,I'll be preaching on Sunday through Mark 9:2-13, the Transfiguration of Jesus. With all the pastors preaching more frequently this year, I hoped to get a shot at preaching on this text.

Jesus Opens Blind Eyes

Dear CrossPointe,We are approaching a turning point in our study of Mark this week as we look at Mark 8:22-26. In this text it seems like Jesus' first attempt to give sight to a blind man doesn't quite get the job done, so he tries again and gets it right the second time.
