The Gospel of Mark may appear as the second book in the New Testament, but scholars are in
agreement that it was the first to be written. As such, Mark is the closest of the gospels to the times and teachings of Jesus. Join us to discuss who this gospel writer might have been, the issues he chose to highlight, and the Jesus he projects in his gospel. Rather than taking a page-by-page walk through the
gospel, we will look at the themes Mark presents and see how they shape the person of Jesus that Mark
wants to present to us.
