Advent & Epiphany Series: The Gospel of Mark
November 26 @ 10:00 am - 10:50 am
Advent marks the beginning of a new church year, and with a new year comes a new gospel for Sunday mornings. This year is the Gospel of Mark. Who was Mark and what makes his account unique? Are there themes or texts particular to this gospel? What does it mean to celebrate Advent and Christmas with a gospel that doesn’t include Jesus’ birth?!
Walk through the Bible’s earliest source for the life of Jesus, guided by scholar Amy-Jill Levine’s latest book and video teaching series. Together we will examine John the Baptizer, the Little Apocalypse, the Transfiguration, and several of Jesus’s most notable stories and parables. The Good News of the gospel message comes alive as we see Jesus as divine and human, powerful and weak, approachable yet mysterious. This series features an in-depth study of select passages and illuminates the Gospel in its historical context and as a source for the other gospels. Not only will it enrich our understanding of this biblical text but also deepen our experience with these texts on Sunday mornings, throughout the liturgical year, and in our own lives.Watch a short introductory video by Amy-Jill Levine here!
