                         "THE GOSPEL OF MARK"

                             Chapter Nine

The events recorded in this chapter begin with Jesus transfigured on
the mountain (1-13), referenced later by Peter in his epistle (2Pe
1:16-18).  Afterward Jesus healed a demon-possessed boy when His
disciples were unable due to a lack of faith and prayer (14-29).  Back
in Galilee, Jesus once again predicted His death and resurrection
(30-32).  Upon arriving in Capernaum, Jesus taught the need for
child-like humility (33-37), to beware of sectarianism (38-41), the
danger of offenses to others and to self (42-48), the seasoning effect
of fire and salt, concluding with a call to have peace with one another
