The authority of Jesus is often discussed in terms of his position as the Messiah, but the clear message of Mark is that Jesus’ authority is not like that of the Pharisees, the Herodians, or the Romans. Jesus’ authority is not power granted by position or station of life. Jesus’ authority flows from his personhood, and that not simply by his divinity, but also in his humanity, which overflowed with mercy, justice and humility. Likewise, Mark points that it his this imparted character and nature that produces the same result in the life of his disciples.
