Mid-Year Study – Conversations with Scripture: The Gospel of Mark
August 5 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The St James’ Institute presents: Conversations with Scripture: The Gospel of Mark (Week 4)
Study the Bible in a fresh way. The St James’ Institute is sponsoring an online five-week study of the Gospel of Mark, emphasising the parallel use of reason and faith in understanding Christian scripture.
Using Marcus Borg’s accessible book on Mark as a guide, the discussion series will explore the historical and critical background of the Gospel, while also examining how its metaphors, parables, and miracles still speak to twenty-first century Christians. You will leave this study not only appreciating Mark in a fresh way, but also with interpretive tools to understand the Bible more generally.
There are four online study groups beginning in the week of 12 July with various meeting times: Monday at 10:00am, Tuesday at 10:00am, Wednesday at 7:30pm, and Thursday at 1:00pm.
