Encountering Christ in the Gospel of Mark
Who is Jesus Christ? How can we really know Him? People have been ì asking that major question for 2,000 years. The best answers are ì found in the four Gospels, but how are they to be understood, and ì applied to our modern lives and faith?
Cardinal Schonborn, former student of Pope Benedict XVI and ì well-known as a brilliant theologian and spiritual teacher, ì presents his second volume of reflections on the person of ì Christ, this time as found in the words and images of Jesus seen ì in the Gospel of Mark. Sunday after Sunday, Cardinal Schonborn, ì one of the leading candidates for the papacy in the recent papal ì election, uses the Gospel readings from Mark to explain the ì beauty of the Gospel in clear and understandable words.
The Cardinal emphasizes that each of the four Gospels is unique ì and has its own unmistakable shape and approach. He says that no ì other Gospel writer talks in such a human way about Jesus as ì Mark. Anger and sorrow, Jesus' passionate emotional responses, ì are more explicitly mentioned in Mark than in the other Gospels. ì But however human Jesus may appear here, it is also Mark in ì particular who also strongly emphasizes his divinity. Believing ì in Jesus, having faith in him, is what Mark is all about.
