Mark: The First Eyewitness Account
The gospel of Mark has a unique contribution to make to our understanding not only of Jesus Christ but also of early church history because it was the first Gospel written immediately after the martyrdom of Peter and Paul. Addressing specific texts that represent the overall spirit of the book of Mark, this talk takes you deeper than The Overview of the Four Gospels, described earlier. In the Gospel of Mark, we discover Jesus as the Son of God, as well as where the earliest glimpses of Jesus the Messiah are given. Written as an eyewitness account from what Peter conveyed to the young man, John Mark, the air of authenticity makes the Bible stories and narrative come alive. Mark also provides the earliest glimpse of the Master, a breathless one year ministry of events, healing and of course the Passion Week. You’ll learn about its two endings, the view of Jesus and the disciples, and we hope you treat yourselves to reading it in a single seating before or just after the talk. Nothing can replace this earliest gospel’s text of passion and heart. Enjoy this audio lecture in CD format or MP3 instant digital download. Runtime: 57 minutes
