Jesus was the eldest son of a large, poor family living in one of the least desirable districts in Israel. Therefore, He was well acquainted with the hardships of life. As our Savior and Friend, He can empathize with us when we come before Him in prayer. Therefore, we should heed the word’s spoken by His heavenly Father, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. Hear ye Him!” Please listen as Pastor Ray Viola completes His discussion of Mark chapter one, verses nine through eleven.
