The Catholic Study Bible A special version of the New American Bible, with a wealth of background information useful to Catholics.

How to Proceed

The best way to study Mark's Gospel is to follow his story of Jesus from beginning to end. Mark's brief narrative is taut and compelling; it can be read in one sitting, and, in fact, that is a good thing to do before concentrating on a particular passage of the Gospel. To prepare the reader, we will trace the main segments of the story line and then discuss in more detail some of the major themes of each section.

The evangelist uses geography to organize the main lines of his story: the Gospel drama opens in the Judean desert with John baptizing at the Jordan River, then moves to Galilee where most of Jesus' public ministry takes place, and finally to Jerusalem for the climactic events of the Passion and Resurrection. (See map #13.)
