Bishop Russell's Introduction to the Gospel of Mark and Reflection on Chapters 1-4:34
In this introduction to the Gospel of Mark, Bishop Russell offers some overall context in which this fast-paced gospel was written and gives insights into the world of Jesus that Mark says is the beginning of the good news, inviting "those with ears to hear, listen." Mark 4:9
Bishop Russell then walks us through the first four chapters of Mark and suggests some questions for further reflection of the readings, urging the reader to pay special attention to the parable of the sower and to ponder, "What kind of soil are you?"
