St. Mark was the first to set in writing a ‘Gospel’ of Jesus Christ, although this occurred decades after Jesus’ life, death, and Resurrection. We will explore what the first-century Christians believed about Jesus the Christ.
This course is a study of the gospel style and of Mark’s gospel specifically. Come read, consider, and pray with us on Wednesdays, morning or evening. Either bring your own favorite Bible to class, or you can use the large-print hard-cover Bibles that are in the room. We will be using the New Collegeville Bible Commentary: The Gospel According to Mark.
If you are just returning to town, feel free to join the class at any time.
