The Passion in the Gospel of Mark (Wednesdays)
Prepare to celebrate the drama of Holy Week and Easter in the company of Mark.
Each Gospel presents its own account of Jesus’ Passion and death. In general details they agree, but they differ in particulars and emphasis. This short course looks at how Mark tells the story of Jesus’ last hours. In the first part, Jesus is in full charge of affairs, as he prepares himself and his disciples for what is to come. In the second part, Jesus is silent and seems to succumb to the forces ranged against him. In the third part, after he had died, the reader realises that in fact, he was the victor.
