We begin a series of explorations of the books of the New Testament. The gospel of Mark is generally thought to be the earliest of the four gospels. It provides a vivid account of the ministry of Jesus, especially of the last week of his life. However, like all the gospels, it is not simply a plain account or biography. It is written with a purpose and in a particular social context, so that it tells us about life for disciples in the age of Nero as well as a portrait of the “Son of Man” in the 30’s. Each session will cover about two chapters with plenty of opportunity to debate in class the interpretation of the story.
