Mark 4 Summary

  • v1-20 - Jesus both tells and explains the meaning of the parable of the sower.

  • Remember, parables are not just 'earthly stories with heavenly meanings' given to help the crowds understand Jesus' message.

  • For more insight as to why Jesus 'hid' His meanings in parables, see last year's DIG DEEPER post.

  • v26-34 - Jesus tells two more short parables.

  • v35-41- Mark's version of the famous account of Jesus stilling the storm

One of the primary points of chapter four is that Christians are to view all things, including what we read in the Bible, through the lens of faith. Otherwise, as Jesus said in v12, you will indeed see, but not perceive.
