In these pages you’ll:

- Take a closer look at the breadth and depth of God’s grace through Jesus
About the Study
Few (if any) written works have more profoundly altered the landscape of human history than the four Gospel accounts of the life and teaching of Jesus. The Gospel According to Mark stands among those works. Despite its small size relative to the others, Mark’s Gospel is a monumental piece of historical and theological reflection on the most influential person ever to walk the face of the Earth.
Over the course of 12 weeks, Dr. Brad Johnson will guide learners through Mark’s narration of the events leading up to and immediately following the life of Jesus. Under the power and inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Mark has artfully created reading cues that will direct the study to a depth of understanding we may not have yet reached.
And although understanding is an important goal, it is not our ultimate one. Anyone who picks up and reads the Gospel of Mark is bound to experience something greater, something richer, and something infinitely more valuable: transformation.
