Mark's Gospel is likely the first one of the four Gospels to be written. While in many ways it is the simplest, a close study of Mark reveals its many mystifying and challenging aspects.
Mark writes to reveal Jesus' identity as the Son of God and the character of the kingdom as the reign of God that confronts the darkness and overturns cultural corruptions. Jesus calls disciples to inhabit God's life-giving reign and follow Jesus on the way to the cross.
In 2015, Dr. Timothy Gombis, a faculty member at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, facilitated eight teachings on the New Testament book of Mark.
