What Did Jesus Really Say & Do (According to Mark)?

Tuesdays 1:00 – 3:00

Forty years passed from Jesus’s death to the writing of the earliest surviving Christian Gospel. Moving chapter-by-chapter through Mark, learn how scholars determine the historical Jesus’s authentic words and deeds from those which are categorized as “possible,” “unlikely,” or “implausible.” Learn about the Quest for the Historical Jesus. Practice close readings of the biblical text. Discover some of the major points of interpretation that scholars debate. Be better equipped to engage in this sort of interpretation on your own in the future.
