St Mark S Gospel

St. Mark's Gospel

New Testament

Aim of the Course

To lead the students to read the mind of the author and to see the relevance of his message both in his time and in our time.

Course Content

We will begin with the overall structure and content of the gospel followed by the reading of the text to draw the message. Parallel passages in the other gospels will also be considered.

Students will be expected to work in detail with at least one major commentary on their own.

Basic Greek will also form a part of the course, continuing from earlier courses.
