Jesus’ Leadership in Mark 1:22

People with formal authority rarely impress the masses.

As a teacher, I often struggle with this issue.

High school kids discount their teachers’ authority unless they are able to establish strong credentials.

It is important that I am well-prepared for summer school; otherwise, I will quickly lose my credibility!

Mark writes that Jesus “taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law” (NIV).

How can I apply this lesson to my work as a teacher leader and as a leader in my classroom?

How interesting that Jesus motivated Peter and Andrew to follow him so effortlessly.

This book highlights elements of Jesus’ personality that I’ve never noticed before.
