Gospel of Mark


The complete series of stories from Mark’s Gospel are available in print and as eBooks. See links on the right. Thank you for your support.

This is a collection of studies on the Gospel of Mark through the eyes of a new believer. Mark’s book presents the gospel through a set of eyes different from the three other authors inspired to recorded the life of Jesus. Mark writes about the same stories with a characteristic style only he used. Some people prefer Mark because he quickly moves from one event to another. Early in my studies I had to ask why. As I looked back I could see the pattern Mark created. Like every other author contributing to the Bible, Mark shares the characteristic of building one lesson upon another. Mark’s quick style of writing draws special attention to a very important aspect of Bible study, understanding God’s timing. These lessons help bring out the essence of God’s perfect timing.

The goal of every disciple teaching Bible study is to get the student to learn how to slow down and let the Spirit lead. What book could teach this better than Mark? Once a disciple learns to slow down in Mark, they will learn a valuable lesson which will open up all of God’s Word.

One cannot expect to understand the book of Mark without reviewing one of the most important subjects Jesus taught in Matthew, the ability to separate the world from spiritual lessons taught by the Holy Spirit.

Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!” For it is not you who will be speaking–it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. “You are permitted to understand the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven, but others are not. “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way! This fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah that says, ‘When you hear what I say, you will not understand. When you see what I do, you will not comprehend. For the hearts of these people are hardened, and their ears cannot hear, and they have closed their eyes– so their eyes cannot see, and their ears cannot hear, and their hearts cannot understand, and they cannot turn to me and let me heal them.’ “But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear. I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, but they didn’t see it. And they longed to hear what you hear, but they didn’t hear it. “Every teacher of religious law who becomes a disciple in the Kingdom of Heaven is like a homeowner who brings from his storeroom new gems of truth as well as old.” Matthew 12:50, Matthew 10:20, Matthew 13:11, Matthew 11:25-26, Matthew 13:14-17, Matthew 13:52

It is time to slow down, look at Mark’s gospel, review previous texts and list the key lessons Mark took the time to record.

These lessons some times contain more questions than comments. They can be used in any small group study as a guide to create the perfect atmosphere for an open discussion on the texts. Everyone should be encouraged to share their individual thoughts on what the verses mean to them, how they relate to other texts and personal life experiences. The goal of these studies is to introduce people all around the world to a closer personal relationship with Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God through HIS WORD.

This collection of stories on the Gospel of Mark reveals many of the lessons taught by Jesus in a manner that makes it easy to share with people of all ages, especially children.  Please remember these stories are under  Copyright © 2012 Dennis Herman.  All rights reserved which means the individual stories may be shared without charge, but may not be used in any way for profit.
