The Knowing the Bible series is a new resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God's Word. Each 12-week study leads participants through one book of the Bible and is made up of four basic components: 1.) Reflection questions designed to help readers engage the text at a deeper level; 2.) "Gospel Glimpses" highlighting the gospel of grace throughout the book; 3.) "Whole-Bible Connections" showing how any given passage connects to the Bible's overarching story of redemption culminating in Christ; and 4.) "Theological Soundings" identifying how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from a wide array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God's grace on each and every page of the Bible. The Gospel of Mark plays a unique role in the Bible, painting an important portrait of Jesus as Israel's promised Messiah. However, Mark's account also makes clear how Jesus's kingship confounds public expectations by emphasizing his humility, suffering, and sacrifice. This accessible guide, filled with wise reflections on the biblical text and insightful questions for personal application, helps readers understand what vibrant faith and authentic discipleship looks like for those who follow a rejected king.
