The St James’ Institute presents: Conversations with Scripture: The Gospel of Mark

Study the Bible in a fresh way. The St James’ Institute is sponsoring a 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.

Study groups start on the week of 12 July with various meeting times: Monday mornings, Tuesday mornings (online), Wednesday evenings, Thursday afternoons. The book can be purchased for $25 from the Parish Shop.
