Our Hunches Hunch 124
In a Nutshell
Our hunches are never complete. We can't rely on them totally. They are a mixture
of ideas and feelings and by them we link things together as we seek to understand
God's world. So, we also thank God for His word, the bible, which helps us
understand our experience, how we think and how we feel, as members of Jesus'
Did Mark say anything that indicated that Jesus had hunches about
things? What were they?
There are many things
you can do now that you have read through Mark's gospel.
Read through the
other gospels and see what is special about Mark's story. What things didn't he
tell us that the other three did?
Read the other books
of the New Testament where Mark is mentioned - Paul's letters and also the Acts
of the Apostles.
I also have a few other related projects:
Ø A short
story about Mark which links all the references to him in the New Testament.
children's version of Mark's gospel.
versions of Hunches on CD and tape.
Try writing your own
bible stories and then tell them to your brothers and sisters, cousins, uncles,
aunts, mum and dad. Listen to other people's stories and learn how to tell stories
in new ways. Being a student in Jesus' school has many surprises and
challenges. I hope that Hunches about Jesus has been helpful to you as
you discover more about what being His disciple means.
