Ignorance Isn't (Always) Bliss

October 23, 2022 Pastor: Brandon Babcock Series: Mark: The Forgotten Gospel

Scripture: Mark 12:18–27, Deuteronomy 25:5–10, Exodus 3:1–6, Daniel 12:2–3, 1 Corinthians 15:17–19, Philippians 3:20–21


Mark 12:18-12:27

The Story:

Mark 12:18-27, Deuteronomy 25:5-10, Exodus 3:1-6, Daniel 12:2-3

  • The Sadducees attempt to trap Jesus with an absurd story to discredit Jesus’ authority and to ridicule the resurrection
  • Jesus’ double rebuke:
    1. Ignorance of the power of God
    2. Ignorance of the Scriptures

Don’t Be Wrong About the Resurrection:

1 Corinthians 15:17-19, Philippians 3:20-21, 15:42-44

  • The resurrection is central to the Christian faith.
  • The dead will rise in bodily form.

Resurrection life is not a continuation of earthly life but a transformation into a new and glorified life.
