* Jesus Scandals.
Scandal followed Jesus everywhere he went. His teaching, his miracles, his unconditional love for all people – everything he did and said subverted and threatened the social and religious establishment of his day. Looking at key episodes of Christ’s ministry according to St Mark, we will discover how the scandalous Jesus challenged the norm, and still does, and why he is good news for our world today. This Sunday we consider Jesus’ attack on empty religion.
