As Christians, we know that Scripture is the inspired Word of God. The Shrine continues its ongoing Scriptural Studies series with the Gospel of Mark.
In this Gospel, Mark tells of the ministry of Jesus from his baptism by John the Baptist to his death, burial and the discovery of the empty tomb. It is theologically and historically significant for two reasons. First, because it is the oldest of the four canonical Gospels, it paints the most “human” portrait of Jesus. Second, its contents were incorporated into the Gospels of Matthew and Luke a decade or more later, giving us what we now call the Synoptic Gospels.
Join us for an in-depth examination of the “first Gospel” – the Gospel of Mark.
Presenter: Mark Etling, Affliate Theology Teacher, St. Louis University
