Part 4 Help my unbelief

Mark 9:14 - 28 Peter, James, John, and Jesus are returning from an incredible time of prayer up a mountainside.   As they walk back into the village, they see a crowd gathered.  The angry gestures from familiar figures show that the rest of the disciples and some Pharisees are arguing.   And you know Jesus (the… Continue reading Part 4 Help my unbelief
