In C. S. Lewis book Mere Christianity, he said, “A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic -- on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg -- or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” What Lewis is trying to say is that when we see the things Jesus did and hear the words he said about himself, we are only left with three choices, Jesus was a bold-faced liar, he was a lunatic and delusional, or He was exactly who he claimed to be and is Lord and God. In our look at Mark’s Gospel this morning we will look at how people responded to Jesus in ways that were not belief.
