The Gospel of Mark
with Rev. Chuck Coblentz
Mark was the earliest written gospel, therefore it is closest in time to the historical Jesus. Right away Mark begins by telling us who Jesus is, but then, 16 chapters later, ends with one of the most unexpected and controversial finishes in all of literature! In between we hear story after story of how Jesus’ own followers wrestled with his identity, often guessing and guessing wrong. But on the long journey to Jerusalem we meet a gaggle of the blind, disabled, demonically possessed outsiders who know exactly who this Jesus is! What did they have that the insiders lacked? As insiders ourselves, what can we learn from their stories?
We will be utilizing N.T. Wright’s Mark for Everyone as a guide along the way. Classes take place on Mondays at 10:30am and Thursdays at 7pm, starting the week of September 23rd. See you there!
Mondays at 10:30 am
