Sunday Sermon Outline: Jesus the Carpenter

“Jesus the Carpenter”
Mark 6:1-6

Introduction: Mark 6:1-6, “And He went out from there, and He came into His home town; and His disciples followed Him. 2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue; and the many listeners were astonished, saying, "Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands? 3 "Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James, and Joses, and Judas, and Simon? Are not His sisters here with us?" And they took offense at Him. 4 And Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his home town and among his own relatives and in his own household." 5 And He could do no miracle there except that He laid His hands upon a few sick people and healed them. 6 And He wondered at their unbelief.”

I. A carpenter defines the value of honest work.
     “Isn’t this the carpenter, the son of Mary?”

II. A carpenter demonstrates that he can create something new.

     Matthew 12:20, “A battered reed, He will not break off; and a smoldering wick, He will not put out.”
     John 1:3, “All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him, nothing came into being that has come into being.”
     John 14:2, “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places, if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.” 

III. A carpenter displays the potential in his materials.
     "You are Simon, the son of John; you shall be called ‘Cephas.’”

IV. The Carpenter died upon a carpenter’s creation for our sins.
