Mark Lesson 19 (2022)
JESUS TENDING PEOPLE’S NEEDS THROUGH HIS DISCIPLES
What was a time when you had to do something that you thought was not possible?
Read verses 30-32. What did the apostles do upon returning from their mission trip? (30) Why did Jesus want to go away with the disciples to a quiet place? (31-32)
Read verses 33-34. What prevented Jesus and his disciples from getting rest? (33) What does Jesus’ reaction to the crowds tell you about his character and mission? What did Jesus do for the crowd?
Read verses 35-36. What problem did the disciples bring to Jesus? What solution did the disciples suggest to the problem they faced? (35-36)
Read verse 37. What did Jesus think of the disciples’ suggestion? What did the disciples think of Jesus’ solution? What does the disciples’ reaction tell us about them?
Read verses 38-44. What unique plan did Jesus come up with? (38-41) What did Jesus’ disciples do with the leftovers? How many people did this event directly affect? (44) What do you think Jesus wanted to teach his disciples through this miracle?
What does this story teach us about being caretakers of what God has given us? What is one possession or ability you need to give the Lord so that he can use it for his glory?
