Mark is a gospel of action, calling the first Christians to discipleship and encouraging them to have faith even amidst suffering and oppression. With Fr. Felix Just, SJ (PhD, Yale University), you will explore Mark’s vivid portrayal of Jesus and his disciples. You will also encounter minor Bartimaeus, the Syrophoenician woman, and Jairus - each of whom remains a powerful model of discipleship and faith in our time. This short talk is part of a larger series, Fr. Just’s acclaimed Introduction to the New Testament. We invite you to enjoy the entire 36-talk series.
