Threshold Bible Study is a dynamic, informative and inspiring way to enter into a deeper relationship with God through Scripture. Each of its thirty-lesson, theme-based books will help readers explore (through the lectio divina method of reading, study, reflection and prayer) new dimensions of their faith. It will help them discover deeper insights for their lives and help open the doors of their hearts to the risen Christ. Great for personal reflection as well as group study. JESUS, the SUFFERING SERVANT PART ONE Mark [1-8] Mark wrote his gospel for the persecuted Church in Rome. This first half of the gospel focuses on the question for all disciples, “Who do you say I am?” In his fast-paced gospel, Mark highlights those parts of the tradition that will help the Church understand Jesus better and follow him more faithfully. As participants in this study, you will learn that following Jesus requires radical conversion, deep faith in him and constant readiness for the coming of God’s kingdom.
