Meet Jesus Through the Gospel of Mark

In the first verse of Mark’s gospel, we the readers are informed that Jesus is the world-changing King, the Messiah.  But the remainder of the gospel is written more like fast-paced mystery as the characters seek to answer the question, “Who is this man, Jesus?”  And even in the middle of the story, when Peter correctly identifies Jesus as the long-awaited Jewish Messiah, it becomes clear that the characters are still confused about his purpose, mission, and destiny.  And so, the second half of Mark’s story seeks to clarify the kind of Messiah Jesus is – a Messiah and King who will be exalted on a cross rather than on a throne.  Join us on Sunday mornings as we seek to meet and encounter Jesus afresh and anew through the stories of his life and ministry.
