Nick Perrin on the Gospel of Mark

Over at The Christian Leadership Center, Nick Perrin (Wheaton College) has a good little article on preaching the Gospel of Mark.

Perrin concludes:

Mark tells us about this new movement, this new messiah, and this new mission. This has all kinds of implications for how we live, the one we live for, and the cause for which we live. Perhaps the most important thing to remember in preaching Mark is that this gospel really is not an action movie of successive high-impact scenes. Rather it is a tapestry of many threads. If you find the main threads, you are better poised to share Mark’s beauty with others. Such beauty was meant to be not merely impressive but transforming.

    Of course, this is best done armed with Mark for Everyone by N.T. Wright! ;-)

    Great article. I especially liked this: “After Jesus expires, the temple curtain is rent asunder, which symbolizes that the Lord God of Israel was now going out to the nations (15:38).”

    How many times have we heard that the curtain being torn was to enable us to come in to the temple, rather than indicating that God was coming out to us?
