How does Jesus make me new? [Mark 1:1-15]

Sure, Jesus of Nazareth is the most well known figure in human history. And yeah he had some really good ideas, but the full story about healings, miracles, rising from the dead, and Jesus actually being God is pretty hard to believe. But for 2000 years, this story has transformed millions of individual lives and the entire world. Maybe there’s more to the story of Jesus than we first thought. What if it is true? What could that mean for us now?

Main Points:
[01:13] The story of Jesus is often difficult to believe.
[02:40] The questions we all have to wrestle with are: Who is Jesus? and What does it mean to follow him?
[05:08] God promised a new beginning for all of humanity.
[08:05] The story of Jesus is the story of humanity’s new beginning.
[11:02] Jesus is humanity’s representative and the one who restores our true humanity.
[13:30] Where we sin and ruin everything Jesus heals and restores everything.
[15:30] Jesus claimed to be launching God’s new revolution.
[16:05] Repentance is a complete revolution in how we see God, ourselves, our lives, and our world.
[16:36] We all long for some kind of new beginning.
[17:26] The NEW we are all looking for is found not in something but in someone: Jesus of Nazareth.
[21:05] We are all invited into the story of Jesus.
