Mark 9:14-29 - September 7th 2018

Jesus Heals a boy with an unclean spirit

Read Mark 9:14-29 

  1. Where did Jesus just come from? (Look back at v. 2-13)
  2. Who was arguing when Jesus arrived and what were they arguing about? (v. 14-18)
  3. How does Jesus respond to their arguing?
  4. What does the father cry out in v. 24?
  5. What does Jesus do to the boy?
  6. Why couldn't the disciples cast out the demon?
  7. How is Jesus different than the disciples in this passage?
  8. What does this passage reveal about who Jesus is?

Application:

  1. The father cried out, "I believe; help my unbelief!". In what ways do you struggle to believe Jesus? Is it wrong to struggle with unbelief?
  2. What does it practically look like to cry out to the Lord for help like the father in the passage?
  3. How should we think about the power of prayer from this passage?
