The Earliest Narrative
From March 7-28, over a period of 4 Sundays, I will be teaching a course on the Gospel of Mark at Petaling Jaya Evangelical Free Church.
“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (Mark 1:1): these are the first few words found in the prologue of the Gospel of Mark, often regarded as the earliest eyewitness account of the life and ministry of Jesus in the New Testament. What is this “good news of Jesus Christ” according to Mark? How does Mark tell the unique story of Jesus Christ? What does Mark hope to achieve by telling the story the way he tells it? In this course, we will examine and unpack the structure and major theological themes in Mark’s narrative. We will also discover that Mark’s Gospel still challenges and invites us to a fuller understanding of what it means to be authentic disciples that embody “the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (Mark 1:1) in our lives.
