In Part 19 of his Mark series, Rabbi Schiller looks at Mark 8 and the two-stage healing of the blind man, showing how we’re all spiritually blind to our own inadequacy and myth of self-sufficiency, and like the Apostles themselves, we often need to receive our spiritual sight in stages.
In Part 18 of his series on Mark, Rabbi Schiller looks at the stories of the Syro-Phoenecian woman and the healing of the deaf-mute in Mark 7, focusing on the humble assertiveness of the woman who persists on petitioning Y’Shua, even for the crumbs from the table, and the death & resurrection of Messiah that accomplished our healing
In Part 17 of his Mark series, Rabbi Schiller looks at Mark 7 and the claim that Yeshua declared all foods clean. This message discusses how what defiles you comes from within, from your heart, and thus you cannot cleanse yourself, but rather you need a new heart.
In Part 16 of his Mark series, Rabbi Schiller looks at Mark 7 & Y’Shua’s view of the Scriptures, showing how the ultimate purpose of the Bible is for Yeshua to capture your heart, and for you to fall in love with Yeshua, who’s the person at the center of every narrative in the Bible.
In Part 15 of his Mark series, Rabbi Schiller looks at the feeding of the 5000, focusing on Y’Shua as the Good Shepherd who brings a different kind of revolution than what the Jewish people and the world were expecting, based on blessing His enemies and dying for our sins.
In Part 14 of his series on Mark, Rabbi Schiller looks at Mark 6 and the offensiveness of Y’Shua and His message of free yet exclusive grace, and how we likewise are to be both attractive and selectively offensive.
In Part 13 of his series on Mark, Rabbi Schiller revisits Mark 5 and explores lessons on faith, explaining how Desperation, Information, Direction, and Substitution are the key elements that connect us to Y’Shua, and that it’s the object of our faith, not the strength of our faith, that saves us.
In Part 12 of his series on Mark, Rabbi Schiller looks at the healing of the women with the issue of blood and the raising of Jairus’ daughter, focusing on the themes of the delays of Y’Shua; the lessons we learn from those delays as we trust Him in the darkness; and how Y’Shua had to become weak that we might become strong.
In Part 11 of his series on Mark, Rabbi Schiller looks at Y’Shua’s encounter with the Gadarene demoniac, and explores the complexity of evil in our lives; the pattern of how evil works in our lives, whereby through our sin we make "pacts" with the devil; and how evil can be defeated by the power and costly grace of Y’Shua.
In Part 10 of his Mark series, Rabbi Schiller looks at Y’Shua calming the wind and the waves, as we see His infinite Divine power; His unmanageable power as He permits us to go through storms; and His costly power, as He took on the storm of God’s Judgment on our behalf.
