Pharisees Need Snacks Too: Mark 2:13-22

February 19, 2012 Speaker: Joshua Vernoy Series: Mark

Topic: Biblical Passage: Mark 2:13–2:22

Levi, a tax collector, known as one of the worst types of people, gets called by Jesus and leaves all for him.
On top of all of that, he invites everyone he knows to a party so they can meet Jesus.
Joy motivated over duty motivated
Luke 18:10-14
Pharisees have a self righteous view.
Mark 2:16 why are you hanging around the undesirable
Jesus responds sayingHe did not come for them, He does notfindthem desirable
Matthew 23:16, 23-24, 29-30
We look at others, like murderers and think we are righteous, but we all are like them. How concerned are you with those going to hell and sharing the gospel.

Fasting:
Pharisees made up there own rules for fasting
Lev 16:29-30
Mark 2:18 they were essentially asking, "why don't you at tone for your own sins?
It has all been done for us.

Mark 2:21-22 you can not try the gospel to the law.
