Gospel of Mark

The Gospel of Mark – Part 14

Have you ever felt misunderstood…a time when others misinterpreted your intentions or motivations? Maybe it’s something you had said, or done, but it was not received well. Did you wonder “How could they think that about me? That’s not what I meant at all!” In our time, people think all kinds of things about Jesus. They may have their own versions about who he is, why he came to earth or why he died on a cross. They may not like some of the things he said or did, or debate at length whether he is the only religious figure to follow. We have been spending some time in the book of Mark to examine a report of what Jesus did and taught and said about his purpose. As a storyteller, Mark is  straightforward and blunt. He provokes us to look at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and respond to him accordingly. Join us throughout June as we draw the Gospel of Mark series to a conclusion.

The Gospel of Mark – Part 11

Have you ever noticed how meetings might get more frequent or the pace of work intensifies as you get closer to a project deadline? Maybe you’re planning a wedding, preparing for exams or nearing the launch of a new product. Even rehearsals for a theatrical play might change as the director focuses on those parts that need to be refined so that the show can go on as planned. The story of Jesus and his time on earth as told in the gospel of Mark changes gears in the latter chapters of the book in much the same way. Jesus starts to prepare his disciples for the ultimate goal of his mission here on earth. He continues to reveal who he is with greater focus on his purpose and how this will come about. Join us as we continue in the book of Mark and watch how Jesus reveals his identity and intentions and what it means for us today.
