LECTIO: MARK: FAITH NOT FEAR - DISC 1 OF 5 (INCLUDES DV 62535 to DV 62539) Disc 1 includes Sessions 1, 2 & 3. Session 1 – Saint Mark the Evangelist – Just who IS Saint Mark, the author of this short but action-packed Gospel? Using outside sources, other books of the Bible, and the Gospel itself, Dr. Gray takes a close-up look at Saint Mark, and his connections with Saint Peter and the Christians of Rome. (31 minutes). Session 2: Prepare the Way of the Lord. The opening lines of Mark’s Gospel proclaim that Jesus is, without a doubt, the Son of God. He is the one for whom the way is being prepared. As Jesus sets out on the way, fulfilling the Old Testament prophecies and prefigurements, Mark shows the Son doing precisely the work of the Father. (30 minutes). Session 3: Come Follow Behind Me. Following his baptism in the Jordan River and temptation in the wilderness, Jesus returns to Galilee where he invites the first disciples to follow him and begins the work of regathering the scattered people of God. (31 minutes). Join Dr. Tim Gray in this powerful fourteen-part series to discover the Gospel of Mark like never before. Immerse yourself in this action-packed Gospel that offers Saint Peter’s account of Christ’s life and teaching. Delve deep into the themes of the “way” and the true discipleship and see how Jesus reveals his identity in authoritative action and word. Consider more deeply Jesus’ teaching on the temple and walk with Jesus to Gethsemane and the Way of the Cross as Mark describes it. Open yourself to profound reflection on the shortest of the four Gospels.
