Gospel of Mark
7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. in the Community Room
Begins on Wednesday, Sept. 7 through Nov. 16, 2022
Jesus the Suffering Servant: Mark 1-8
Mark wrote his Gospel for the persecuted church in Rome. This first half of the Gospel focuses on the question for all disciples, “Who do you say I am?” In his fast-paced gospel, Mark highlights those parts of the tradition that will help the church understand Jesus better and follow him more faithfully. As participants in this study, you will learn that following Jesus requires radical conversion, deep faith in him, and constant readiness for the coming of God’s kingdom.
Jesus the Suffering Servant: Mark 9-16
This second half of Mark’s Gospel explores the implications of being disciples of Jesus. Exploring the recollections of Peter, readers will learn how to follow Jesus faithfully, based on both the successes and failures of his original disciples. As participants in this study, you will realize that Jesus can only be fully understood on the cross as he gives his life for the redemption of all people and that you cannot follow Jesus until you accept the necessity of the cross in your own life.
This session for Scripture will be from Threshold Bible Study authored by Stephen Binz and will last 11 weeks. Each session will start promptly at 7:00pm in the Community Room.
Materials will be provided at the first introductory session. Cost is $20.00 covering both books.
Please RSVP by August 24.
