The Gospel of Mark.
Most scholars point to Mark as being the first of the four Gospel written, so it should not comes as much as a surprise that Mark opens his Gospel with these words. The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. (Mark 1:1). Mark’s words are true, this is the beginning! The Beginning of the good news, the first words written down about Jesus’ life and ministry. The first written account of his death. These words will lead to lives that would be changed and would cause others to change their way of thinking. And these words will spur many more people to write Jesus and what it means to really follow him.
So why not join us as we reflect on the first words written about Jesus and what they mean to us today.
