RELIG DB 6
Part One: The Gospel of Mark
This week we read the Gospel of Mark, which scholars believe is the earliest of the four canonical Gospels (in other words it was likely written before Matthew, Luke, and John). In the first part of your Discussion Board response
Respond to the following questions concerning the Gospel of Mark:
What were your expectations of this Gospel? Did you have any prior experience reading it or hearing about it? How did you imagine that it would describe the life of Jesus? Were those expectations confirmed or was it different from what you thought it would be?
What surprised or fascinated you most about Mark’s portrayal of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus?
Overall, how do you think Mark wants the reader to understand Jesus? What particular attributes of his personality, teaching, healings, and/or death is he trying to emphasize?
Be sure to include at least one quotation from the Gospel of Mark in your responses to these questions.
Part Two: Let’s Look Deeper Pages
This week you also read about the documentation for Jesus and early Christianity in sources other than the Christian Bible as well as some groups in the first few centuries of Christianity that had different ideas of who Jesus was.
Respond to the following questions concerning the “Let’s Look Deeper” pages:
What was the most interesting thing that you learned about in these two pages? Why was it interesting?
Why is it important to know about this piece of Christian history in order to better understand the Christian religion as a whole?
