For most of church history, Mark has not been greatly appreciated. Matthew has been the church’s favorite Gospel and the church’s theologians have usually headed for John’s lofty christology. When Mark was finally “discovered” during the nineteenth century, they assumed that Mark was the most “historical” Gospel. Finally, in the middle of the 20th century, when scholars and critics began to work together, Mark’s Gospel, described as “a Passion Narrative with an introduction,” came into its own and was recognized for its profound theology of the cross and its brilliant literary technique—almost like film. Dr. Katherine Grieb, Professor of Biblical Interpretation and New Testament, Virginia Theological Seminary and a certified Biblical storyteller, will lead us in examining Mark’s theology of the cross and the cost of discipleship following a crucified and risen savior, with attention to how this Gospel “works” to encourage potential disciples of Jesus and to convict us of the need to walk the way of the cross.
