"I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells."

-Psalm 26:8

This is why we gather.

Gospel of Mark

The Gospel of Mark is one of four accounts we have of the life of Jesus.  The early church symbolized Mark as a winged lion (a symbol of strength) because his account deals in greater detail than the others with Jesus’ mighty acts, his miracles.  Mark emphasizes Jesus’ authority, and that he has this authority because Jesus is God himself.  At the same time, it is in Mark’s Gospel, that we meet Jesus at his most human.  He is sorrowful, angry, joyful, and kind.  He stoops down to hold children, touches the lame, eats with sinners, and overturns tables in the temple.

This, then is the message of the book.  The Promised Christ has come in power (chapters 1-7), but also in hiddenness, humility, and suffering (chapters 8-16).  Join us for our study of Mark’s Gospel and let Mark show you someone unlike anyone you have ever met, and this Jesus will be too much for us to keep to yourself.
