The Gospel of Mark
The Gospel of Mark invites us to believe that Jesus is the promised Messiah who ushered in the Kingdom of God through miracles, teaching and ultimately his death and resurrection.
This is where you can find all the resources and videos for our inductive study through the Gospel of Mark. There will be new content added weekly to aid you in your study. If you have any questions or need help with any of these resources, feel free to contact Aaron or contact Sara with questions.
Apart from the launch video – which you should watch first – every weekly study will have a follow-up video where we will talk through additional resources, big ideas in each chapter, and other thoughts.
Start here by learning how to do an inductive bible study. We’ll walk you through various tools that help you learn to observe, interpret, and apply the Word of God for yourself. This study should take a little over an hour.
For the first week of this study, we’ll read through the entire Gospel of Mark. This will help us get a feel for the book as a whole, understand the book in the context of the whole biblical narrative, and develop a main idea for the book. You’ll need the study guide below as you get started and it’s also helpful to watch the linked videos from The Bible Project.
“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God…”
Grab your bible, the weekly study guide, and dive into chapter one of the Gospel of Mark. From here on out, you’ll use this guide EVERY week.
There are 2 videos to assist you in your study – a quick one on tools that can help you go deeper and a video from the Bible Project on reading the Gospels.
“And when he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home…”
“Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand…”
“Again he began to teach beside the sea. And a very large crowd gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat in it on the sea, and the whole crowd was beside the sea on the land…”
“They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gerasenes…”
“He went away from there and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him…”
“Now when the Pharisees gathered to him, with some of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem…”
“In those days, when again a great crowd had gathered, and they had nothing to eat, he called his disciples to him and said to them…”
And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.”
And he left there and went to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan, and crowds gathered to him again. And again, as was his custom, he taught them.
Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples…
And he began to speak to them in parables. “A man planted a vineyard and put a fence around it and dug a pit for the winepress and built a tower, and leased it to tenants and went into another country.
And as he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look, Teacher, what wonderful stones and what wonderful buildings!”
Chapter 14 (Part 1)
It was now two days before the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to arrest him by stealth and kill him
Chapter 14 (Part 2)
And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives…
And as soon as it was morning, the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council. And they bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him over to Pilate.
When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him.
