Intolerance in Mark

  1. Jesus becomes angry at those who said that he had "an unclean spirit," so he announces the unforgivable sin: "blasphemy against the Holy Ghost." 3:29

  2. Any city that doesn't "receive" the followers of Jesus will be destroyed in a manner even more savage than that of Sodom and Gomorrah. 6:11

  3. Jesus initially refuses to cast out a devil from a Syrophoenician (non-Jewish) woman's daughter, calling the woman a "dog". After much pleading, he finally agrees to cast out the devil. 7:27

  4. If you're ashamed of Jesus, he'll be ashamed of you. 8:38

  5. Jesus says that those that believe and are baptized will be saved, while those who don't will be damned. 16:16
