Want to dive deeper into the book of Mark? You can do just that by purchasing this combo pack of the Mark CD and Study Workbook—and receive a 15% discount in the bargain.
What was it like to live in Israel in the first few decades following Jesus’ ministry? The Gospel of Mark, written some 30 years after the resurrection, is the earliest and most accurate record we have of those times.
This workbook begins with some historical, political, and religious background on the decade of the 60s in the first century, when John Mark wrote his account.
Each chapter has five to six questions meant for individual or group Bible study. The questions are designed to tease out the underlying themes of each chapter and relate various texts and narratives to the texts and narratives immediately before and after.
In addition, the questions help students recognize the macro themes in the Gospel of Mark. For instance, one such theme is whether Jesus was being correctly identified and understood—and, if he was, by whom. (Or if he was not, by whom.)
There are blank pages to write answers in preparation for a group discussion as well as maps to orient students to the places Mark mentions.
The Bible study tools contained in this workbook—indeed, in all BibleRoads workbooks—are designed to create lively discussion and to stir deep thinking, to encourage participants to work with commentaries but also to bring their own insights to the study.
Everyone will be helped by keeping in mind three basic Bible study questions: What does the text say? What does the text mean? What does the text mean to me? The questions will help you get to those deeper answers.
