William Placher provides us some context for the man. Despite Jesus’ best efforts to keep things silent, word goes out across the land. People have lost faith in the institutional church. We get nervous when new voices start to speak – whether it is Jesus or the unclean spirit. And are we willing to take this journey, knowing that none of us has any true authority?He writes that “like the children or mentally people we often try to keep out of church, he promptly disrupts by yelling his head off.” Isn’t that the way it often is – the ones who disrupt get it and we don’t. Remember that in Mark Jesus is seeking to keep his identity quiet. This synagogue crowd didn’t need to know, quite yet. At this the spirit releases the man and the people are once again amazed. Any authority that is present comes from the one who leads us.

The point of inductive preaching is not to offer a thesis, offer proofs, and then ask for a decision.

Whatever authority that the preacher has is more indirect than direct.

She and her mom Sue Hill enumerated this large cemetery, north of Lordsburg west of Hwy 70, about one mile north of town.

The City of Lordsburg takes care of the cemetery records for Mountain View Cemetery.

The scholastic method of doing theology that dominated the medieval western Catholic Church assumed this to be true.

You lay out your proposition, then array the authorities pro and con, and formulate a conclusion based on those authorities. The rabbis would quote the experts so as to bolster their argument. He didn’t quote Barth and Calvin, Wesley and Pope Francis.

Placher goes to say that “Evil spirits never have any problem knowing who Jesus is; ‘the demons believe—and shudder” (Jas.

)” (Mark (Belief: A Theological Commentary on the Bible), Jesus answers by telling the spirit to be silent.

The clean folks don’t know who Jesus is, but the unclean man does. In fact, why does a man who shouldn’t even be in the synagogue recognize Jesus for who he is? We who are clergy can get nervous about job security and pensions.

The man himself, being unclean, shouldn’t be in a sacred space. We live in an age that questions most forms of authority. Governments come and go and seem to focus more on keeping power than touching lives. Yes, we (and our families) are just like everybody else. But Jesus comes and tears down the walls and erases the lines. Are we ready to follow this teacher on a journey that in Mark leads to a cross?

In this particular story Jesus goes down to Capernaum, on the Sea of Galilee, and since it’s the Sabbath he goes in with his disciples to share in the synagogue service.
