Mark 1:1-11 – Jesus is the Good News

When we think about the word “gospel” we very often think in terms of good news about Jesus. And, while it is true that the gospel communicates good news about Jesus, Mark sets out to persuade his readers that Jesus himself is the good news. Taking us back to the beginning of this good news, Mark will help us rehearse our gospel identity. As we we make our away through Mark’s gospel account, we will see over and over again what it looks like to live out of that God-given identity, living with gospel intentionality and gospel power in the ordinary every day moments of life.
