Mark Cover


The time has come

Who did he think he was?

The text in this magazine is a translation of an ancient, 2,000 year-old document. Now known as Mark’s Gospel, it’s one of the books of the Bible. It reveals the story of Jesus, whose teachings and words have impacted the world like no other. But is that all Jesus was? He was unlike any in authority of his time, and our time too. He was radical, revolutionary, miraculous, passionate and committed. And he died for his cause. But that’s not the end of his story.
