What was it like in the first few decades following Jesus’ ministry? The closest we can get to finding out is the book of Mark, the very first Gospel written—some thirty years after the resurrection.
This workbook begins with some historical, political, and religious background on the first-century decade of the 60s, when John Mark (Mark’s real name) was writing his account of life with the Master and the other disciples. From this study you will gain a clearer understanding of Jesus’ identity and purpose.
Each chapter has between four and six thoughtful questions that reveal key themes. The questions are designed to prompt readers to think of new ways they might view such familiar material.
