Bringing the Gospel of Mark to Life
This short course/workshop aims to give participants an understanding of the meaning of Mark’s Gospel for those for whom it was originally written as well as how it is meaningful for our lives today.
The Gospel of Mark is the shortest of the four Gospels, but it is the richest in detail, giving us descriptions of miracles and events in the life of Jesus found nowhere else in the Bible. This short course/workshop begins with background information on the Evangelist and his Gospel. The focus is on the Gospel’s meaning in the time of its writing, as well as how it is meaningful for our lives today, in particular how Jesus’ suffering and the mystery of the cross can reshape our faith and transform our lives.
