An Introduction to the Gospel of Mark

Mark appears to be the first Christian writer to shape traditions of Jesus’ deeds and words and the major events of his public life into a narrative that led inexorably to the cross. He is the only evangelist to call his narrative “Gospel.” This short course is designed to give participants an introduction to and an overview of Mark’s Gospel – the Gospel for the Sunday Cycle of Lectionary Readings this year. Participants will also be offered brief and thoughtful leads to how this Gospel can connect with Christian life today.
