Forty Days with Mark

By: George Kimmich Beach


About the Book
“The Gospel of Mark, being the first-written of Biblical and apocryphal Gospels, is historically seminal. It has sown the seeds from which all subsequent narrative accounts of Jesus of Nazareth—the basis for understanding his life and teachings—have sprung. seeds of insight and affirmation.

The chapter titles are a compendium of familiar but mystery-laden sentences, among them: “The time is fulfilled,” “Lord, I believe, help thou my unbelief,” “If any man desire to be first. . . ,” “My name is Legion,” “But whom do you say that I am?” “And the common
people heard him gladly,” “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem,” “He goes before you into Galilee.” Mark’s Jesus is the parable-teller whose life has become a multi-faceted parable.”
