There's a sense of anticipation as Mark begins his account. Explore uncertainty, expectation and connection:
Mark draws us in gradually to his account, telling his story as you would a secret. Build up a picture of Jesus as you explore the stories of those he meets.
The people Jesus meets experience the same questions, hopes and fears that we do today. Discuss these stories with a friend.
The gospels are full of people telling their stories - people asking questions, seeking relationships, searching for something more.
A central character, woven throughout each story, is Jesus, a historical figure surrounded by mystery. Join us as we explore these stories, and build up a picture of Jesus through the people he meets and the accounts that are written about him.
