THE GOSPEL OF MARK

NEW SERIES - THE GOSPEL OF MARK - THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST

We have begun a new series on the Gospel of Mark entitled "The Good News of Jesus Christ". Out of the four Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus, Mark's account, which is believed to be largely influenced by the teachings of Peter, is the shortest of the accounts but also the most dynamic in terms of style. It is action packed, quickly moving from one scene to another, and within this format Mark portrays Jesus as a Servant through whose service comes the greatest news ever for humankind "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45). Let's focus for a time upon the wonderful person of Jesus Christ and may our time of reflection and meditation so impress us that we in turn will live like Jesus in this needy world.
