A Reading of Mark

Mark’s gospel is the shortest of the four, but some would say the most focused.  Mark is the ultimate gospel for finding out that Jesus is the Son of God who came to die for us.  In a nutshell, that is the message.

On Tuesday 30th March we recorded a complete reading of Mark's Gospel, with members of the congregation.  This is not a dramatized play, but the same gospel text that we have in our own homes.  It takes about ninety minutes to read.

Hearing a whole gospel read gives insights that we may not appreciate when we listen to the gospel as smaller, separate passages.  Mark has many themes which work throughout his whole narrative that you would not otherwise see.

For those listening online, you will find a very useful summary of Mark's Gospel here.
