Exploring Mark – a series on the Gospel of Mark with Fr Nicholas King SJ

Image result for gospel of mark lionThe Gospel According to St Mark is the shortest of the four gospels but often tells of Jesus’ ministry in more detail.
A short series of video reflections, ‘Exploring Mark’, aims to bring us a little closer to Mark the Evangelist and his account of Jesus, his life and his ministry.
The commentary is provided by Fr Nicholas King SJ,  eminent author and Bible scholar, who offers his insights into particular areas of Mark’s Gospel.
Seven videos are available for use by individuals, groups and communities to accompany us in our renewed reading of the Gospel of St Mark through this liturgical year (2017-18, Year B).
