The Gospel of Mark Series | Mark 7: 31--37 | Pastor Joey Zorina
The famous classical composer Beethoven began to suffer from hearing loss around 1801. At one point he had to be turned around to see the applause of the audience, because he could not hear the applause. For years he had lived for the applause of people, which only comes after the performance. So by 1802, Beethoven became very depressed and wanted to commit suicide. In the Gospel, however, we hear the Father's applause before the performance--because of Jesus.
