John Mark begins his gospel by saying, “The beginning of the good news about Jesus, the Messiah, the Son of God.” After his baptism and temptation, John Mark continues saying that Jesus began “proclaiming the good news of God”saying, “The time has come, the kingdom
of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
In this series from the gospel of Mark, we walk with the crowds and disciples who came to hear this good news about Jesus and consider with them the question Jesus asks of all people, “Who do you say that I am?” In order to answer this question, we pay close attention to what John
Mark presents in his gospel as the good news about Jesus. We especially look at how Jesus seeks to form his disciples to become “followers of him, fishers of others.”
