Series Description

Mark is the oldest gospel we have, but what difference do a bunch of ancient stories and sayings about Jesus make for what we’re facing today? In this series, we’ll discover that Mark reverses that very question. He carefully wove together the story of Jesus to present his readers, both then and now, with a question: What difference does Jesus make in your life? What difference does it make that the Son of God has showed up on the scene? What difference does it make that he takes up a cross instead of a sword?
