Introduction to Mark’s Gospel

Revd David Owen

 This  introductory study will enable you to get so much more out of Mark’s Gospel, and discover more fully its many riches.


If you have not yet had a chance, you can find it here:-

Part 1: Revd David’s translation of the Ancient Culture into an accessible understanding of the historical original context.

Part 2:  More detail on the author of the Gospel, some important characteristics of Mark’s Gospel, a more detailed study of Mark’s understanding of the Messiah, and Finding Good News in the Gospel of Mark for today.

The most influential writers on Mark’s Gospel recommend that it is listened to.


Father Mark Smith has kindly recorded a YouTube video for us of The Gospel According to St Mark, Chapter 1, from the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible, which you can find here. Father Mark is Chaplain to King’s College and King’s Hall School in Taunton, UK.
