Hausbuch Master (Germany), c. 1480, Gospel Book with Evangelist Portraits: Saint Mark

Semester 2 unit | The Gospel of Mark

Like the other New Testament Gospels, the Gospel of Mark presents its own unique portrait of Jesus. But as the earliest Gospel, Mark tells his story of Jesus at a quick, urgent and exciting pace in ways that the other Gospels do not. And as the earliest Gospel, Mark tells a story of Jesus that is, arguably, the most interesting and most readily accessible of the four canonical Gospels. Consider enrolling in the Gospel of Mark to prepare for Year B in the Revised Common Lectionary, to learn more about the earliest Jesus traditions, and to be immersed in an exciting narrative that tells the story of Jesus with urgency, suddenness, and excitement.
