Class - Reading the Gospel of Mark
During Epiphany, we are joining with the Episcopal Church in reading the Gospel of Mark, as part of the Presiding Bishop's Good Book Club. Mark opens with words from the prophet Isaiah: “See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,” and indeed the gospel itself serves as a messenger for the life and ministry of Jesus. Written around 65-75 CE, Mark proclaims the good news that Jesus is the messiah and Son of God.
Join Rev. Nate for three evenings devoted to Mark's Gospel, covering the scheduled Good Book Club readings up through those evenings. Classes will be held from 7pm-8pm on Zoom. Click here to join the class on Zoom.

You may read the Gospel of Mark at your own pace, or follow the Presiding Bishop's Good Book Club, with a schedule of daily readings.
Mark is the shortest of all Gospels, and can be read in one sitting in about an hour and a half. Or engage with it orally, as the earliest Christians did, by reading it aloud or via a podcast or YouTube. We recommend:
