Now we find ourselves in the last paragraph of the first chapter of Mark. Mark chapter 1, verses 40 through 45, that ends chapter 1. Now I told you we'd be moving through Mark faster than we moved through Luke ten years, or Matthew eight years plus. And just to prove that to you, we've been eight weeks in Mark and we are now at Jesus' healing the leper. If we were in Matthew, we wouldn't run into that until chapter 8 of Matthew and we would be three years in Matthew before we got there. Now if we were back in Luke, we wouldn't run into this until the middle of the fifth chapter of Luke and we would have been two and a half years in getting to this. So we are definitely moving faster.
