When Christ Jesus walked among us in the flesh he was rightly acclaimed as a wonder worker. Yet those who saw through the eyes of faith knew He was so much more. The evangelist Mark is unambiguous in his message. Jesus of Nazareth was not simply a man among women and men, but God among us. Mark inaugurated his Gospel with the words:  “The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” Mark then goes on to recount that this Jesus, this Son of God, was beloved of God and tempted by the Evil One. He was a teacher, who opened the minds of those who came to Him. He was a healer who made whole those who were infirmed.
