God Takes Charge: The Gospel of Mark and the Kingdom of God
Presented by Scott Lewis, S.J.
Eight weeks starting Thursday,
April 3, 2014 from 11 am to 1 pm No class on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
The battle cry at the beginning of the ministry of Jesus was very stirring: 'The time is fulfilled; repent and believe the good news; the kingdom of God has come near'. What did the words mean in 1st Century Judea? How do the words color the narrative of Mark's Gospel? How should we understand them today? We will examine Mark's Gospel as the foundation of the Synoptic gospel accounts and the unique ways in which Mark narrates the story of Jesus.
