What (Wo)Men Need (not want) Mark

Jesus's ministry prepared his disciples for the reality of his great mission: to die for the world's sins. In this healing Jesus showed the priority of forgiveness over healing, and demonstrated his authority and power to forgive by healing the paralised man. The scribes wanted a Messiah who entrenched their religious position; the people wanted a Messiah who made their lives physically easier; but Jesus came as a Saviour who rescues us from eternal death. Do we have our priorities right?
