Mark’s Gospel in Context

Delve deeper into the Gospel of Mark and discover more about its literary, social, cultural, and theological contexts from which this fascinating gospel has emerged. 


This unit, taught by Sally Douglas, provides an in-depth study of Mark’s Gospel and the context it was written and exists in. Consider issues such as gender, power, cosmology, ethnicity, and Christology and how they’re discussed and framed in the Gospel of Mark, both historically and in terms of applications for today. Students will get the chance to trace the narrative of this text and learn face to face in weekly classes, held on a Thursday night at 6pm.
