Bible Study - Mk. 10:17-31 The Rich Man Bible Study - Mk. 10:17-31 The Rich Man Presentation Transcript

  • Mark 10:17-30
    How to gain eternal life. Following the commandments.
  • 17 And as He was setting out on His journey, a man ran up and knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
    18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but God alone.
    19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not kill, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal,
    Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’”
    20 And he said to Him, “Teacher, all these I have observed from my youth.” 
    21 And Jesus looking upon him loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing; go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”

  • 22 At that saying his countenance fell, and he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions.
    23 And Jesus looked around and said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!” 
    24 And the disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus said to them again,
    “Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God!
    25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
    26 And they were exceedingly astonished, and said to Him, “Then who can be saved?”

  • 27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
    28 Peter began to say to Him, “Behold, we have left everything to follow You.”
    29 Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or
    father or children or lands, for My sake and for the gospel, 
    30 who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.

  • 10:17-22 The Rich Man
    The rich man wanted to be sure he would qualify for eternal life, so he asked what he could do to be certain.
    It’s hard to believe but he said he’d never once broken any of the laws Jesus mentioned (10:19).
    Maybe he had even kept the Pharisees’ loophole-filled version of the laws.
  • 10:21 Tough Love
    Jesus tenderly exposed the man’s pride with a challenge that brought out his true motives:
    “Go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor.”
    This challenge revealed the barrier that might keep this man out of the Kingdom: his love of money.
    Money represented the pride he took in his accomplishments and work.
    Ironically, his attitude made him unable to keep the first commandment: to let nothing be more important than God (Exodus 20:3).
  • Can You Measure Up?
    He couldn’t meet the one requirement Jesus gave him, to turn his whole heart, his whole life, over to God.
    The rich man came to Jesus wondering what he could do to assure his salvation and heavenly reward.
    He left after grappling with what he was presently unwilling to do.
    Can the rich get into heaven?
    Sure they can, Jesus is pointing out having money is nice, a gift from God, but it is what you do with the money that is important.
    If you use it to benefit others as well as yourself then you are being a faithful steward of God’s gifts.
