“The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” Mark 1:1
On Saturday, 28 September, we had our fourth and final FIRE preaching workshop for the year. In our previous workshops, we focused on Genesis, Judges and Psalms. We discussed the development of God’s plan to save mankind from sin and the intimate relationship between God and His Covenant people. The focus for our most recent workshop was, preaching from the Gospel of Mark.
Mark is a power-packed Gospel filled with the actions and miracles of Jesus, climaxing in His suffering, death and Resurrection. This Gospel is clear, vivid and to the point. It is like reading the sermon notes of a street-preacher who demands that we believe in a powerful Saviour, imitate His servanthood and obey His Lordship.
