Join our Davis College students this fall in a FREE course open to the public!
The Gospel of Mark class will be taught by Professor Bill Berkheiser. Read more about Professor Berkheiser here.
Students and professor will engage in an in-depth, chapter by chapter study of the book of Mark. More a drama than a narrative, Mark unfolds the plot of his gospel with complex characters and concludes with a cliffhanger ending. Along the way, the class will bring to light Mark’s theology of key subjects. Finally, an emphasis will be made upon Mark’s process of discipleship, as the disciples wrestle with who Jesus is and what it means, and will likely cost, to follow him.
