Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15
Mark is the one of the earliest accounts of Jesus' life. Though it is the shortest of the four gospels, Mark's fast-paced, to-the-point style offers a comprehensive account of Jesus' life. His quick and bold message offers us a detailed portrait of Jesus' ministry.
Mark introduces us to the Servant-Messiah, the One who is always on the move, serving others. The One who "did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45).
Mark's gospel illustrates the compassion, authority, and power of God through the many miracles Jesus performed. And it provides undeniable proof that Jesus is the Son of God and promised Messiah.
Mark's gospel gives a glimpse of Jesus' humanity recorded through Jesus' emotions, frustrations, and fears and shows that Jesus can relate to our own feelings, like despair, rejection, and sorrow.
"Follow Me" (1:17). This command sets the premise for the whole book. Mark's gospel teaches us what it means to follow Jesus and how to be a servant. It encourages us to continue following even when times get tough and life doesn't meet our expectations.
"What a fantastic study from start to finish! I loved the format and the fact that it was always based on scripture...I cannot express how much I loved doing it. I looked forward to it each day. And I learned so much!"

"My purpose in getting and reading the book was to get information that would help with our church worship in the Hebrew names of God. I searched online and found some sources a little too complex for what I wanted. I found the beginning of each chapter to be simple, straightforward and concise. The writer goes through 14 of the different names that show the attributes of God. Upon further reading, there are questions to guide you into a devotional time. It has a large format style which is like workbook. It is readable, thoughtful and you will get a lot of it. It is more than you might expect."
Amazon Review by Nancy
"Your study really helps me slow down in my study of Scripture, and the way you bring in other Scriptures and ask questions gives me a greater understanding of what I am reading."
