Those of us who preach the Narrative Lectionary are faced with an interesting challenge this weekend. The NL calls for Mark 1:1-20. It is “the beginning of the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” but…there’s no baby Jesus!!!
It will be the 5th day of Christmas. How do you have a Christmas sermon with no baby Jesus?!?
I’m going to try.
I invite you, dear reader, whether you are a preacher, a teacher, or a student of scripture to explore my Cartoonist’s Guide to Mark 1:1-20.
This season I plan to create another graphic novel style visual commentary on the Gospel of Mark (see the one I did on Matthew last year). Each page will include a downloadable PowerPoint that walks through each panel, moment-by-moment, a .zip file with all the images in .jpg format, and an assortment of online resources to aid in your study of the text.
The quick link is stevethomason.net/mark
All of this is free!
Blessings on your study.
