The Gospel of Mark
About the Study
St. Mark paints a portrait of Jesus that is vivid, dynamic and focused on His miracles and His divine Sonship. But, unlike the other Gospels, the structure of Mark defies easy definition. In this five part series, Dr. Scott Hahn reveals the hidden themes that St. Mark employed, like a master composer, to orchestrate his magnificent work.
This dazzling study looks beyond the Evangelist’s almost breathless account of Our Lord’s life to unpack the rich depth of spiritual treasures that lie just beneath the surface. As Dr. Hahn uncovers the fascinating background and amazing details of St. Mark’s Gospel, you’ll discover new insights and come to a new appreciation of the often-overlooked literary genius that enlivens his inspired words.
