My introduction to teaching and preaching on Mark’s Gospel is now available on the Publications page.
Mark’s Gospel is foundational to our understanding of what the good news is about Jesus, his life, death and resurrection. This is in many respects a stripped back account which enables us to home in on the crucial details. We learn here what it means to live in the shadow of the Cross, to choose a way of suffering and service and to know, worship and depend on the true King as we see his kingdom come in our lives.
Mark is therefore a fantastic introduction to Christian faith and so plays an important part in evangelism and basic discipleship. However, there is also much here for established and mature believers as we remember that our who life is lived in light of the Gospel.
