The Kingdom of God is At Hand

In this first lesson from the gospel of Mark, we begin by examining the who, what, when, where, and why of the book. We then turn our attention to Mark 1:1-20, discussing the role of John the Baptist, the baptism of Jesus, the beginning of Jesus' preaching ministry, and the call of the first disciples. We consider the call of the gospel and we ask what true abandon looks like in our culture.
