Mark Through Different Eyes
The traditional symbol of the Gospel of Mark
an emphasis upon accessibility and interaction, this course provides an
excellent way of reading the Gospel of Mark as if for the first time.
Ideally the course consists of a day of workshops and end with a
performative reading in the evening (or at a Sunday service).
During the day we spend time looking at Mark's style, structure and language as well as placing the Gospel in its historical context. We also look at wider issues, such as how the Gospels were written, what they looked like and importantly how they were used by the first Christians.
The day culminates by drawing all that we have explored together in a reading of Mark as it would have been heard by the first Christians. This can prove to be an enlightening and moving experience for all concerned. It can also function as a special event for the church as a whole.
