DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus’ Teachings – Faith: In today’s Gospel, the crowd was astonished at Jesus’ teachings exclaimed, “Here is a Teaching that is new, and with an authority” that can drive out unclean spirits.”  Ponder on, “If we have deep faith in Jesus’ Words, we too will be divinely enlightened and empowered by them.  Jesus will never fail us.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 1:21b-27

On the Sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. And his teaching made a deep impression on them because, unlike the scribes, he taught them with authority.

In their synagogue there was a man with an unclean spirit, and he shouted, ‘What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God.’ But Jesus rebuked it saying, ‘Be quiet! Come out of him!’ And the unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions and with a loud cry went out of him.

The people were so astonished that they started asking one another what it all meant, saying, ‘Here is a teaching that is new, and with authority behind it: he gives orders even to unclean spirits and they obey him.’
