False Church Authorities

Mark 11:27-12:12

Sermon by Pastor Nick Krauss; Sermon Text: Mark 11:27-12:12

In Mark 11:27-12:12, it is Tuesday morning, only three days now until Jesus’s Crucifixion. Jesus started a conflict with the church’s leadership by clearing out the Temple the previous day (11:15-19), and now they are after Him to see what gave Him the right to cause such chaos (11:27). Their authority was being ignored and rejected by Jesus. And when they confront Jesus, they actually do not learn anything new; after all, they had witnessed Jesus perform miracles by the power of God for the past 3 years (2:6). As a blind beggar once said, “Why, this is an amazing thing! You do not know where he comes from, and yet he opened my eyes. We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him. Never since the world began has it been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, he could do nothing” (John 9:30-33). We will see how Jesus deals with fake pastors just like them.
