Exposition of Mark
How does Mark reveal Jesus Christ in his gospel? How do we carefully investigate Jesus’ life, mission, and ministry as portrayed through the Gospel of Mark and place our findings into a contemporary context? What might be the implications for life and ministry today? In this course, we will seek to place the Gospel of Mark in its historical, cultural, and literary contexts. We will examine closely the various portraits of Jesus that Mark highlights. The focus will be on a careful literary and theological study of the book with the goal of understanding the text and applying it to the present context.
