The Extraordinary Story · Season 3

What the Rich Young Man Lost | S3 E18

Pope Benedict XVI said the world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness. We’re going to explore just that in this episode as we read the story of the Rich young Man, which is a hinge story in the gospel. One of the big important turning points in the gospel. And we’ll even touch base with Ted Turner before it’s done. So stick around for that. We’re reading from the Gospel of Mark. This particular gospel is one of the ones that shows up in all three Synoptic gospels. It’s in Matthew. It’s in Luke with slight variations, some of which will note. But we’re going to go back to our old friend Mark to read the story of the rich man.

The Extraordinary Story is a podcast about the life of Jesus Christ, who entered the maze of our world to give us his Cross as a ladder up and out. The Extraordinary Story is produced by Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, and is written and hosted by Tom Hoopes.
