Gospel of Mark

Jesus the Son of Man

May 14, 2021 Bonnie Giles Evening

Mark’s gospel not only emphasises the divinity of Jesus as the Son of God and the Mighty Messiah but also his humanity. Jesus becomes hungry (11:12) and tired (6:31) He exhibits a full range of human emotions, including pity (1:41), anger (3:5), sadness (3:5), wonder (6:6), compassion (6:34), indignation (10:14), love (10:21), and anguish (14:34). We also see in Mark that Jesus does not know everything (13:32), and his power is limited (6:5). What does this mean? How do we explore the humanity of Jesus? What does Jesus’ humanity mean to us?
