Teaching is tedious work. No matter how many times you explain something, for every one person who doesn’t get it, there are a thousand people you can’t get to. It’s even harder when the teaching itself is so counterintuitive that even people who think they get it have to keep relearning it. It’s no wonder that people believe the New Testament is saying something new. But the New Testament is not new. If it sounds new, it’s because you have not been paying attention and as a result, have fallen yet further behind those who came before you. Richard and Fr. Marc discuss the Gospel of Mark 1:15-28.
