God, we praise you because we do believe that you have given us the gift of of knowing you through knowing your word.
Specifically, as we've been reading through the gospel of Mark, the good news Apartments, the story of Jesus.
And today we have the story above is an interaction here at the synagogue.
God, I pray that you would open our hearts to the meaning of pray that you would reveal the identity of Jesus.
And I pray that you would help us know and understand not just as a general truth.
What is this mean?
But to us individually, what is this?
Truth mean to me that we learned about Jesus, his words in his works.
In the ministry.
They had praise in Jesus name.
So if you were with us from the very beginning of our study, then you would know that one of the key things that we said, we would take away of our study from Mark.
Is that you would know for yourself.
Who is Jesus?
If we as you've been coming as we've been studying marks.
One of his specific goals is that he would reveal the identity of who Jesus was and he's giving us information.
He's telling us the story.
The story of is unfolding.
And in in Mark chapter 8, which we'll get to, we have Peter's confession of, who Christ is.
If you're not familiar with that, encourage you remark, read ahead and see what work that God is doing in life of Simon Peter.
But one of the reasons we always come to scripture is not so that we know the story of Jesus, but it is so that we personally know and understand who Jesus is, and what does he mean into my life?
And as a result, what do I do with these truths?
We believe that the Bible is God's word for us and help us understand.
How is life live best.
We talk of kids.
All the time.
We read it.
This is not new Sam's creation, but we read a Bible, a little Bible story book when the kids were younger still little.
But it says, God's word tells us how life works best and it really is that simple.
We go to God's word because we believed that the very author of life one who created all things, the guy who knows, all things reveals to us.
How life works best.
And so this morning, as we study, we are going to see two things that Mark is going to put in front of us to say here is evidence of who Jesus is number.
I told you that the title, The astonishing amazing Jesus because it really is what Marcus is saying.
So when we end our our time in the word together today, here's what I want you to know.
I want to be able to answer.
What was so astonishing about Jesus.
I want you to know very specifically, what was so amazing about Jesus.
They almost seemed like to do the same thing.
We use those words interchangeably.
So, I'll, I will show you what Mark is saying, why was Jesus's body?
So astonishing people?
That that heard him speak.
The people that heard him as all his ministry.
Why were they astonished?
And then we're going to finish this morning with verse 27, because Mark is very specifically leading in the story.
He says the people were astonished, she's going to show that they're amazed and then as if reflecting pool, party Bi-Mart tells us You're the question, people were asking among themselves.
What is this?
What do we just see?
What are we doing here?
What we just experienced because it didn't fit any box that they have it.
So we want to end with Louis Marx, own question.
What is this?
And so we want to take a look at what is it mean?
What does it mean for you to now know why? Jesus a Sonic?
Why he amazed?
And we want to take a look at.
What does it mean?
Now, let's begin.
I don't want to take a look at this.
First, the first statement this astonished to take a look at verses 21 and 22 Miriam against for now and immediately on the Sabbath, he entered the synagogue and was teaching And they were astonished at his teaching.
Free taught them as one who had a story and not as described.
Let me unpack a few things.
First of all, this idea of going to the synagogue, the synagogue was what is the place where the Jews would gather?
The synagogue begins to become a part of the Jewish cultural life is if you know the Old Testament or you don't, there was a time where the Jews worship by going to Temple.
But after the temple was destroyed after they were kicked out of there, when the Jews began to basically build Senegal to be very similar to what we are doing today.
They built the place.
Where did you should come together?
Naked, read God's word and pray.
Now at synagogue, you would have somebody typically a rabbi or a scribe, who would take the scroll.
So today we have our, a written copy of the Bible, each of you probably have it.
You also have it on your phone in these times.
It was very rare to have the word of God and the fact he was, it was truly almost a sacred thing to have the written word.
And so you would have a copy of the, the Hebrew, the Hebrew scripture from the Old Testament and they could be on a scroll.
And the way that they would begin, if there was a teacher or they had the scribes and they had the rabbi's that attended the synagogue.
Sometimes you have a visiting teacher and they would invite that visiting teacher to take the scroll to come and read the scroll and then interpret very similar to what we're doing today.
We read God's word and then we discussed together.
What is the meaning of this text?
So when we come to this scripture, Jesus, that the scene is Jesus has come to a synagogue.
He's recognized as a teacher and he's asked to share that the dinette scroll, he would have read a scripture, and then he would have shared the meaning of that text.
Now, who was described the scribes or the one in charge of literally copying down those Sacred Scriptures.
They need help and it's deemed place in the Jewish culture.
They were in many ways because not only did they handle the, the the topping in the care of those Scrolls, but they were the ones who because they were so highly regarded.
They were basically, like your civil lawyers.
When there was a dispute, you went to an awesome time to describe, describe because he knew God wall.
He absolutely respect.
And so this is not somebody that when we see the comparison to Jesus pop, not as long as fried, you need to understand.
There's not a lot of higher positions in the Jewish culture.
You had Pharisees, we had scribes, we had Rabbi your teachers with just to give you an idea.
The setting is a synagogue much like we're here, we're gathered and they're recognizing that when Jesus teaches he doesn't teach like a scribe.
I want to get to the next word here in.
This is the help us understand us.
When we use the word, I don't know what we're beat.
We coming to use in.
My generation was off and we always take something is awesome.
I don't know what the new word is in today's culture.
I don't know if I use the maze a lot.
You feel like a crazy man, crazy, good.
