Jesus in the Gospel of Mark (Part 1)

About This Course

What is the Good News? What is the Kingdom of God that Jesus talks so much about? What is God's Mission and what is our part to play? What is discipleship and what does it mean for us?

Beginning with the context and stories of first century Israel, this course traces Jesus' teaching through the first 8 chapters of Mark's Gospel. Using the stories and characters of the narrative, this course explores core principles of the Kingdom of God, Incarnational Mission, Discipleship, Community, and Life in the Spirit. Taking inspiration from Mark as a storyteller, this course provokes reflection, discussion, and action. You can complete this course on your own, but the richest learning experience will be found through discussing and collaborating in a group.
