Christ in Markís *Gospel

An EasyEnglish Bible Commentary (1200 word vocabulary) on the Gospel of Mark

Keith Simons

This commentary has been through Advanced Checking.

Last part: Jesus explains the story about the seeds

Mark chapter 4

Jesus speaks about a *lamp

Verses 21-25

The only purpose for a *lamp is to give light. Nobody hides a *lamp.

The *lamp was like Godís message. Jesus had told Godís message to the *disciples. And they must tell it to other people.

Godís message is like something that is valuable. Usually, a person loses something valuable if he does not keep it. But light is different. It is only valuable if people can see it. A person wastes it if he does not give the light away.

So God wanted the *disciples to take his message to many people. If they did that, they would not lose the message! Instead, they would receive even more!

Next part: Only God can save
