We commenced our studies in Mark's Gospel by looking at the opening 13 verses of chapter 1 under the title - "Good News with a Capital J!" We learnt that the good news Mark wants to share with us is all about a person, Jesus Christ.
As he begins his Gospel, Mark wastes no time in introducing us to Jesus...
- Jesus Anticipated (by the Old Testament Prophets)
- Jesus Announced (by John the Baptist)
- Jesus Authenticated (by God through His baptism in the River Jordan and through His victory over Satan in the wilderness)
