Read Mark 1:14-20
This is how newness begins; not with hopes of nationalism, but news of a whole new kingdom. And Jesus calls us to be embraced by it all.
When he (Jesus) spoke into their context, standing next to him were ordinary folks, the poor and the marginalised and the faithful who, in Jesus’ kingdom vision, were beginning to tap to the beat of an old song that was sounding brand new.
Jesus’ kingdom vision worked on their memory and on their hopes and suddenly they knew where they were and where they were headed. The old story had new life.
