11junAll Day13Mysteries of the Gospel of Mark, the Churchly Gospel

Event Details

Mark’s Gospel is perhaps the most mysterious and least appreciated. Largely ignored by the early church and underestimated by modern scholarship, Mark has much to offer today’s Church. His portrait of Jesus is strange but compelling. His teaching on the cross and Christ’s Gospel message should resonate especially with Lutherans, providing a bridge to the Pauline Epistles. Even more, Mark accentuates the powerfully sacramental character of our Lord’s ministry. For Mark, Christ’s power manifests itself in Baptism and his enduring presence is to be found in the Bread of the Eucharist. For a Church that so often appears like a boat tossed about on the sea, facing persecution and riddled with doubt, the Gospel of Mark may very well be the Gospel for the 21st Century Church.
