The Nation’s Re-Creation, Calling and the Cost

This section of Mark may sound merely routine–it’s just a list of names. God does not give his word with insignificant portions. The Holy Spirit, through Mark is very selective. Rather than just being filler, our text shows us nothing less than that Christ accomplishes the fulfilling of God’s promises. We find in this passage the nation’s re-creation, the calling of the nation, and the cost.
