The Gospel of Mark is known in some circles as “The Gospel of the Messianic Secret.” In part it gained that moniker because the Disciples never seem to figure out what Jesus is doing or who He really is, even though, to the reader, it seems to be plain. But is it?
Our approach to Mark will be this: imagine an outline of Jesus ~ just a pen and ink sketch that barely gives distinction to Him as distinct from any other man. Now, imagine, over the course of our 27-week study, filling in the sketch with color and texture, detail and distinction. I hope we can approach this familiar story as if we have never heard it before, with the intention of gathering details about WHO Jesus is and who He is calling us to be.
I hope we will be surprised and challenged by what Jesus says and we will need to process and discuss what we are seeing and hearing with what we thought we knew about Jesus, and how that works itself out in our hearts and minds.
