Mythical Jesus: 015: Mark 3:1-3 Look for the Helpers

  • by

Today we delve into Mark chapter 3: 1-3 where Jesus enters the synagogue and come across a man with a deformed hand.  We setup episode 16 story which is the tension between Jesus who wants to heal and the Pharisees who do not want to see their rules challenged.  But stay focused here in episode 15 on Jesus as one who wants to help and the man with the deformed hand who is in need of a helper.  We even talk briefly about Mr. Rogers and how when each of us go through life experiencing challenges there are always helpers around and that we need to both look for them as well as be the helper others are looking for.  We discuss how only when we experience the complexity of humanity are we prepared to have real compassion
