Looking for community and spiritual nourishment?
This fall St. Matthew's hosts a new fall Bible Study by Little Rock Scripture Study on The Gospel According to Mark. Register for either of two groups that will meet weekly via Microsoft Teams video and/or conference call - one on Sunday afternoons, and one on Monday evenings.
The Gospel According to Mark is considered to be the earliest written of the four Gospels.
This Gospel is a vivid account of the ministry, suffering, and death of Jesus. Enter into a rich encounter with this preacher, wonder-worker, and Messiah, whose very life delivered an urgent message about repentance, transformation, and the meaning of suffering in a life poured out for others. The Church will be reading the Gospel of Mark starting in Advent with Year Two of the Lectionary Cycle.
PART ONE covers Mark 1:1-9:32, providing an in-depth study of Jesus’ ministry of healing and preaching. Five Lessons.
PART TWO explores Mark 9:33-16:20, including Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and the events of his passion, death, and resurrection. Four Lessons.
