The First Words From Jesus

Mark’s gospel is thought to be the oldest of the four gospels, and today’s passage contains the first words spoken by Jesus in it. 

Bishop Barron focuses on Jesus’ announcement that the moment has arrived, the privileged time or the kairos. This is the long-awaited critical moment of the appearance of the messiah. 

This is a moment of significant importance, one that beckons us to be alert and attentive, and to focus ourselves on its meaning!

In the Eastern Orthodox and the Eastern Catholic Churches, mass begins with a call from a deacon who says to the priest, “It is the time (kairos) for the Lord to act,” meaning that liturgy is the intersection with eternity.

I happened to have written more about this same passage here.

Jesus Comes to Galilee

The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert, and he remained in the desert for forty days, tempted by Satan. He was among the wild beasts, and the angels ministered to him.

After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

Mark 1:12-15
