Please read the following instructions carefully because we’ve tried to anticipate your questions!
Here’s how this will work: Each week, you’ll come here to the blog and watch the video with Lisa Harper. The videos are 30-35 minutes long. Once you watch the video, we have questions for you to answer in your group or in the comments section of the post. This is available to those studying together and those going solo. Some of the questions will ask you to get to know your fellow Bible study participants and we hope these interactions will be both challenging and encouraging. After the video, we will let you know the personal study assignment to do for the next week in your The Gospel of Mark Bible study book. That’s it! The study will be seven weeks long (including this little introduction week).
A note about the Bible study videos: For The Gospel of Mark, we will leave all the videos up until May 15th, allowing some breathing room for those who join in late or miss a couple of weeks.

Okay, now that all of that is out of the way, watch Session 1 below:
Here are the questions for Session 1. If you are studying in a group, use these questions for group discussions. If you are studying solo, we’d love to read your answers in the comments!
- What is your name? Where are you from?
- What drew you to this Bible study on the Gospel of Mark?
- What are some facts you already know about Mark?
- What is one goal you hope to accomplish by studying Mark?
This week, complete Week One: Aggressive Grace (pages 10-31) in the Bible study book. This Bible study is not divided up into days so you can divide it up by subheadings, if you’d like, or you can do it all in one long sitting if you choose. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, and let’s discover the Book of Mark together!
