NT221 : The Gospel of Mark: Following the Suffering Son of Man (3 Credit)
Academic Year : 2020-2021
About this course
Because so much of its content is taken up in Matthew and Luke, Mark’s gospel - the shortest of the four – has been relatively neglected for much of Christian history. The modern recognition that Mark is likely the earliest gospel, and the re-evaluation of its narrative artistry and theological depth, have led to a fresh appreciation of its themes, structure, and overall message.
The purpose of this course is to: (i) to understand the basic content of Mark’s gospel through the application of sound exegetical method, and (ii) to explore how its central questions, “Who is Jesus?”, and “What does it mean to follow the Suffering Son of Man?” address modern Christians who live in a society which values self-fulfilment, self-achievement, and self-protection.
