The Enemy is Real
Mark’s gospel portrays a world in the grip of political powers which are also spiritual powers; they must be overthrown for God to reign. Evil lurks in many corners of Mark’s world. Jesus dislodges it in scary stories about unclean spirits. He suffers its violence in a state-sponsored execution orchestrated by society’s elites. Nevertheless, restoration has the last word. He brings dignity to people who were thought to be beyond its reach. Linger over the alien character of God’s reign and our inability to perceive it because we have been lulled to sleep by cheap knockoffs.
