  • Date & Time: Tuesday, 4 Oct 2011, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

How the politically risky term ‘gospel’ takes us to the heart of Mark’s concerns in a narrative that is pervaded by mystery, shadowed by suffering, and combines what seems prima facie to be a very high view of Jesus and a very low view of his followers. For over a hundred years Mark’s Gospel has been interpreted in terms of a ‘messianic secret’. Now dissentient voices are proposing a different ‘core’ idea.
