What is Mark’s gospel for? 4th May
Almost the whole of Mark’s gospel is contained in the much larger gospels of Matthew and Luke, much of it expressed in a more articulate and sophisticated form.
So what was the point of keeping Mark in the New Testament? And how did the early church use it?
What makes a disciple? 18th May
The stories of the disciples are familiar and well loved, beginning with a group of fishers invited by Jesus to follow him. But what happened next, and how might their journey with Jesus inform our understanding of what it means to follow Jesus in the 21st century?
What is the point of it all? 1st June
As the first Christians shared the gospel throughout the Roman empire, they needed to explain their faith in ways that would address the concerns of those they met. The questions on the street in ancient Rome had many similarities with things that fascinate people today, and we can learn much from the way in which Mark’s gospel engages with them.
Memories that fire the imagination 15th June
We all have our favourite stories that inspire us, and in this session we will reflect on selected episodes from Mark that have particular resonance today as we work out what it means for us to be effective in ministry and mission.
