Facing Jesus: Taken By the Hand

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, January 25, 2015

Text:Mark 1:29-31


The Jesus of Mark’s gospel is portrayed as always on the move.  His actions are described as taking place “immediately” or “at once.”  This is the Jesus presented to an essentially Roman audience.  Mark’s Gospel emphasizes Jesus’ ministry to Gentiles and to outsiders in general.  Jesus is presenting a view of freedom here which will be expounded more in Paul’s epistles.  Jesus heals Peter’s mother-in-law from a fever.  Current research has focused on the reality of malaria in ancient Rome leading to deadly fevers.  Fever can take many forms. It can symbolize anything that overpowers us. Jesus frees us from whatever fever may grip us, enabling us, like Peter’s mother-in-law, to serve others.
