We’re about to begin the shortest of the four gospels: Mark.
Mark was a master storyteller. His book has been compared to the ancient dramas that were performed on theater stages across the ancient Roman world.
Today, we’ll read pages 319-334 from Mark.
Another thing about Mark: he liked things that came in threes. For example, his account includes:
- Three parables involving seeds (p. 325-327)
- Three popular opinions about John the Baptist (p. 329)
- Three opinions about Jesus in circulation at the time (p. 334)
Most significant of all, Mark’s wrote his gospel as a two-part drama, with each part divided into three acts.
Today, we’ll experience part one of Mark’s fast-paced drama.
