Who was Mark? Why did Mark write his gospel? What is the messianic secret? How does lectio divina move us to pray with Scripture? Mark's Gospel was the earliest of the four gospels to be written, having significant impact on the Church and later writers. In this book you'll read how Jesus prepared for his public ministry and how he revealed the Mystery of God's reign in his words and in his life. The Gospel of Mark introduces you to Mark's thoughts and his audience so that, in the end, you'll become a witness to who Jesus is. And as you practice the ancient art of lectio divina, you'll find yourself not just knowing about Jesus, but coming to know him as the Lord.
