Enjoy new insights into the subtle beauty of the first gospel during the Year of Mark.

Most scholars agree that Mark’s Gospel is the earliest of the four canonical Gospels. It is also the shortest, with swift dramatic turns throughout its fast-paced narrative. It is a Gospel of action, but because of its brevity, it has often been overlooked in the history of the Church in favor of Matthew.

As you will discover, though, Mark’s Gospel is compelling in its combination of simplicity and sophistication. This course guides you through Mark’s Gospel sequentially, offering you fresh insights and a deeper understanding of its overall shape and message. Prof. Ian Boxall, a celebrated New Testament scholar who taught at Oxford for twenty years, presents each lecture with an erudite yet accessible style.

This Bible study course will help you become a more perceptive reader of Mark’s challenging book. Under Prof. Boxall’s expert guidance, you will explore what makes the Gospel of Mark unique. You will meet major and minor characters alike, and you will come to appreciate the “untamed” aspects of this Gospel, which embody the traditional symbol for St. Mark: the Lion. Along the way, you will explore such fascinating topics as Mark’s presentation of Jesus, his use of parables, his symbolic use of geography, and his depiction of the disciples.

Let Mark’s beautiful simplicity inspire you as it has inspired so many Christians across the centuries.
