Module Description

In the current liturgical year, the Sunday Gospels are taken mostly from Mark, a gospel which received less attention than the others through the years, because most of its text was contained elsewhere. But when questions began to be asked about the history of Jesus, Mark came to centre stage as probably the earliest account of Jesus’s life and death. Recent research has moved towards appreciating the literary sophistication of the apparently ‘artless’ gospel and discovered a wealth of theological insight in the narrative, which our course will attempt to explore by close reading. Please bring a copy of the Gospel to each session.
