The story that Mark tells about Jesus is exciting, engaging and relevant. In our new Uncover Mark resource, as in our other Uncover Gospel projects, we’re inviting students to explore the source material, read through a Gospel account of Jesus’ life, and see for themselves who Jesus is.
The Gospel of Mark reads like a documentary account, building up a picture of who Jesus is by telling the stories of those he meets. With this in mind, we created eight sets of discussion questions that focused on a different episode within Mark’s Gospel. We also teamed up with photographer Kieran Dodds to produce portrait, documentary-style photography. This photography features throughout the printed Gospel and complements the discussion questions, providing points of conversation around the themes that Jesus addresses.
As well as the printed Gospel, we’ve developed a number of other resources to help students discover Jesus through Mark’s Gospel, including:
- Spoken word videos, which can be shown at an event or shared on social media to start or follow up a conversation about Jesus.
- Articles, relating specifically to the stories that Mark tells, that answer wider questions about Jesus, the Bible and the Christian faith.
- Acoustic songs that engage with the themes of Mark’s Gospel for CUs to use in an evangelistic music event.
- We’ve teamed up with The Mark Drama to equip CUs to put on a production of Mark’s Gospel and help students experience the whole narrative of Mark’s Gospel.
As a fellowship, we’re working to reach more people with the story that Mark tells about Jesus in a way that they can engage with – from a choral arrangement to art installations and social media campaigns. We want to give CUs tools to create, proclaim and invite students to meet Jesus in Mark’s Gospel.
It’s all about introducing people to the stories that Mark tells about Jesus, and letting them see for themselves what they make of Him.
