      Selk, Gene (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 1999-06-04)
      Today's passage from Mark presents a brief discourse immediately after Jesus has engaged in an extended interchange with the religious leaders of his day. The discourse is puzzling, not only to us but to most scripture ...

      O'Keefe, John (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2007-06-08)
