Circuit Bible Study 3
Our third Bible study is based in the gospel of Mark.
The first three gospels, Mathew, Mark and Luke are always known as synoptic gospels. The word synoptic comes from two Greek words which means to see together. Mark is the shortest of the four gospels and most likely the earliest to have been written. John Mark is the author of this Gospel. The gospel illustrates who Jesus is as a person. Due to the simplicity of the text, the Gospel of Mark is a great introduction to the Christian faith. It is here where we see Jesus as a servant who “did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45) so let us study this incredible gospel together and try to read one chapter a day.
We will start on October 16th and finish on 31st.
As we did with other studies, the following questions can help you as guidelines;
1. Is there particular verse or verses that really spoke to you?
2. Which chapter spoke to you personally?
3. What have you generally learnt from your study?
4. What have you learnt from Mark’s Gospel that can enhance your spiritual growth?
As you study, you may wish to take a note book and write down any relevant things that you have learnt. You can also take a coloured pen and underline the verses that speak to you and help in your spiritual growth.
The following is the timetable for members to meet for feedback and share what they have learnt, thereby helping one another as we endeavour to grow spiritually both as individuals and corporately.
Wednesday November 1st at 7.30pm – Wrenthorpe

Friday November 10th at 7.00pm – Micklegate

Tuesday November 14th at 7.30pm – Upton

Saturday November 18th at 7.30pm – Lofthouse
