As a pastor’s wife and ministry leader, I often get asked a lot of questions about the Bible. People always want to know where they should start. When someone asks me where a good place to dive into the Bible is, I usually respond with two answers:
- Don’t try to read the Bible cover to cover. (Trust me- you’ll give up somewhere around Leviticus and never get to Jesus!)
- Start in Mark
The Book of Mark is a fantastic place to start- especially if reading the Bible is new for you. While all four gospels center around Jesus, Mark is chock-full of stories, and doesn’t have the genealogies like Matthew and Luke do, or the more difficult to understand theological passages that appear in John.
Mark gives you a solid picture of who Jesus is and what He came to do. As you flip through the pages, you’ll read of His miracles, His ministry, His death, and His resurrection. And now, you can see this incredible gospel unfold before you onscreen. With the gospel narrative used as script, The Gospel of Mark offers viewers a memorable and largely authentic depiction of the life of Jesus.
In the first-ever word-for-word adaptation, The Gospel of Mark comes alive and allows viewers to visualize the stories we’ve grown up reading. Filmed with the insight and oversight of theologians and Bible scholars, you get a trust-worthy look at what the life and times of Jesus may have looked like. Even as someone who has grown up with the Bible, getting to experience it in this way is incredible.
The Gospel of Mark is available on DVD at Walmart, Digital HD and On Demand March 14 from Lionsgate.
