The St James’ Institute presents: Gospel of Mark Intensive

Monday 8 February to Friday 12 February | 9:00am-4:30pm | St James’ Hall

Like the other New Testament Gospels, the Gospel of Mark presents its own unique portrait of Jesus. As the earliest Gospel, Mark tells his story of Jesus at a quick, urgent, and exciting pace in ways that the other Gospels do not. Mark tells a story of Jesus that is, arguably, the most interesting and most readily accessible of the four canonical Gospels. Spend a week immersed in a Gospel narrative that tells the story of Jesus with urgency, suddenness, and excitement.

The lecturer is Rev’d Canon Dr Robert Derrenbacker, Dean of the Theological School and an authority on the Gospels.

Participants may audit this class or earn credit through the University of Divinity. Costs of enrolment are not included in the St James’ Institute annual subscription. Register by emailing tcts(at)

This event is co-sponsored with Trinity College Theological School.
