The Failing Disciples (Mark 9:14-32)

 

Read Mark 9:14-32

Jesus, Peter, James and John come down from an incredible mountaintop experience to find the rest of the disciples arguing about why they couldn’t exorcise a demon from a boy.

The boy’s father is desperately trying to muster faith, the disciples are in disarray and the crowds are not helping. Jesus’ response is puzzling and raises questions about the nature of prayer and trust.

It’s an intriguing story.
