The Good Book Club: Introducing the Gospel of Mark

WEBINAR

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

7 PM to 8.30PM EST

The Gospel of Mark presents the good news of Jesus Christ to a tumultuous world. It tells the story of an unexpected messiah who preaches a new kingdom and calls a new community into beginning to live in that kingdom. This 90-minute online webinar provides a foundation for students to read the Gospel of Mark for themselves by offering an overview of the gospel’s content, structure, and key themes. Join us to learn about the gospel and then read it throughout the season of Epiphany to come to a deeper appreciation of the text and hear it speak to your lives in new ways.
