Walking with Jesus Through Mark

Walking with Jesus Thru MarkBetween January to Easter 2009 we will be looking at how Jesus interacts with situations, people and His Father in the gospel story as relayed by Mark. Our focus will be how Jesus responds and reacts in a given situation – looking at the humanity of Jesus and how, as a man, he relates to His Father.
 
Mark writes in a short punchy style. Mark’s point is the story of Jesus and His Ministry – what happened, where, how, who was involved! It’s short and to the point. Mark deals in facts and headlines rather than in-depth reporting and background details.  All these factors make the gospel of Mark dynamic and exciting, and a perfect choice to examine the life of Jesus.
 
The following books are recommended as background reading during our time of shared study.
 
Mark for Everyone – Tom Wright
The Jesus I Never Knew – Philip Yancey
The Challenge of Jesus – N.T. Wright
The Gospel of Mark: The New Daily Study Bible – William Barclay
