The Gospel of Mark: A Beginner’s Guide to the Good News
by Amy-Jill Levine

Begins September 10th – Emmaus Classroom @ 9:00am
Discover the Good News in the Bible’s earliest Gospel

Walk through the Bible’s earliest source for the life of Jesus with scholar Amy-Jill Levine as she examines John the Baptizer, the Little Apocalypse, the Transfiguration, and several of Jesus’s most notable stories and parables. The Good News of the gospel message comes alive in this book as readers see Jesus as divine and human, powerful and weak, approachable yet mysterious. The book features an in-depth study of select passages and illuminates the Gospel in its historical context and as a source for the other gospels. Levine leads us through the Book of Mark in six sessions titled: The Good News Begins; Restoring Purity and Wholeness; Sacrifice, Ransom, Prophet, Messia; Fig Trees and Tenants; The Little Apocalypse; & Judas Iscariot and the Naked Young Man. Adults are invited to join us on Sunday mornings in the Emmaus Classroom @ 9:00am. Grab a cup of coffee or tea & some munchies at the Covenant Cafe in Mission Hall on your way to class. Bring a willingness to engage in wonder as to where God is leading us today. Though not required for participation in this class, participants interested in reading Amy-Jill Levine’s book, The Gospel of Mark: A Beginner’s Guide to the Good News are welcome to purchase it through their preferred book provider.
