The Gospel According to Mark
St. Jerome Bible Study will begin a study of the Gospel According to Mark on Tuesday evening, January 12, from 7:30 to 9pm online via Zoom. The study will run for 11 weeks on Tuesday evenings.
The shortest and first of the four gospels, Mark is the earliest account of Jesus' life. Mark asks everyone to answer Jesus' question, "Who do you say that I am?" and challenges believers in every generation to accept the reality of the cross. For more information and to enroll, contact Steve Picard at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome. No experience necessary
In addition to our bibles, we will use the following commentaries:
Marie Noonan Saban, PhD. The Gospel According to Mark-Part 1 and The Gospel According to Mark—Part 2 (Liturgical Press, 2020). These are the “new editions” of the LRSS Mark study.
Cost = $16.95 plus tax and freight per book
Commentaries can be purchased from Little Rock Scripture Study (www.littlerockscripture.org/Category/LRSSNE/New-Editions).
Calendar: Tuesday Evenings. 7:30pm-9pm**, via Zoom
