Sometimes we have wrong expectations about what the gospel is. We think we know what the gospel is and what God promised us through Jesus. Sometimes our understanding of what the gospel is turns out to be narrow, sometimes incomplete, sometimes misguided.
We think that the gospel is only about what happens to me when I die, or that it promises me an easy life. The goal of Mark’s gospel is to give us a clear picture of the gospel Jesus proclaims so that we will be able to live it out in our own world because we have what we need to be obedient and to stay faithful when times get tough.
This study is about helping people understand the Gospel power and purpose for everyday living.
