Gospel of Mark: First called “The Memoirs of St. Peter”. This gospel although the shortest (only 16 chapters) is probably the most difficult to understand. Written during the Jewish star with the Romans (66 to 70 C.B) but before the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. It employs the apocalyptic genre to predict the fall of the Temple. Disciples are seen in opposition to Jesus, not understanding who he is and what type of messiah he was called to be. Subsequently, they do not see what disciples are called to be even today.
Explore these and other issues while you are deepen your own faith. Study sessions are held in Tabor on the ground floor of the main building from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. every Monday night. Everyone is welcome and refreshments are provided.
