The Gospel of Mark at St. Francis de Sales McCabe Center 755-1953 Jesus of Nazareth, A Gospel Portrait Thursday, April 23 from 7-9 PM Presented by Fr. Bernie Campbell, CSP During these talks, Fr. Bernie will focus first on Jesus and his times with a particular emphasis on the Jewishness of Jesus, biblical themes and texts (Hebrew Bible) that the disciples of Jesus used to help them understand Jesus, and the Kingdom of God as Jesus’ central proclamation. Fr. Bernie will focus on Jesus in his words and deeds and on the last tumultuous week of Jesus’ life. Suggested donation of $10. Thursday, May 14 from 7-9 PM Presented by Fr. Bernie Campbell, CSP Mark is the first and shortest of the four Gospels that we have in written form. Biblical scholars used to frown a bit upon Mark in comparison to the lofty John, the literate Luke and the highly organized Matthew. The almost dismissive view spoke of Mark “as a long Passion Narrative with a short introduction”. That view no longer holds among NT scholars, as Mark is now seen as something of a path setter …. creating the Gospel written form … and someone with a unique perspective on Jesus, his disciples and the mission. Suggested donation of $10.
