Scripture from Scratch
with Sister Anne Walsh OP
The Gospel of Saint Mark has been described as “a passion narrative with an extended introduction” (Martin Kähler). On Palm Sunday we hear Mark’s Passion and, at the Easter Vigil his Resurrection narrative—with the most important verse missing! This course will explore Mark’s gospel to deepen our understanding of Mark’s portrait of Jesus and his message.

He said, “Abba, Father, for you all things are possible; remove this cup from me; yet, not what I want, but what you want (14:36)

“They were all amazed and glorified God, saying, ‘We have never seen anything like this!’” (2:12)

March 22nd Living the death and resurrection of Jesus
‘ He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel will save it.” (8.34-35)
