The Gospel of Mark

The Last Supper Netherlandish (Antwerp Mannerist) Patiners 1515-20 cropped

This study will delve into Mark’s storytelling. The Markan Gospel depicts a Jesus of both good news and urgent challenge. The clever author of this book masterfully weaves together episodes that encourage close and attentive reading, especially if we want to understand more about the audience that first heard this book. This interwoven whole of good news, challenge, and literary delight make the Gospel of Mark a wonderful book to read together in Bible study.
