- John the Baptist, Jesus' baptism, temptation by Satan. Mark goes through these remarkably quickly.

- The kingdom of God is near!

- So much healing.

- Jesus' reluctance to be named by the demons/to tell people who he was is interesting, and I forget the possible reasons for it.

- It's exciting to see the progress he made, the start of his journey, how things were for him.

- A travelling preacher, like many others, but the Son of God.

- Why would Jesus be moved with anger towards the leper? At the unfairness of his illness, the injustice of how people treated him, at the leper's lack of faith that he wanted to do him good? Possibly there's social cues that show he was being disrespectful/trying to prove Jesus wasn't genuine.

- The first days of the ministry are pretty amazing - all this teaching and healing of people, spreading news about the kingdom of God.
