Christ as servant is the basic theme of the gospel of Mark. Great care is taken to show the submissive attitude of Jesus Christ as He cares for the afflicted, heals the sick, and comforts the tormented. This self-study guide points out the key verse (Mark 10:45), which divides the gospel in two parts--the service and the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus. By studying verse-by-verse this "book of action," you will experience what Christ did as well as what He said.The books in the Jensen Bible Self-Study Guide series are designed to provide you with a broader understanding of God's Word. Offering historical context and background, author information, charts, and other helps, these books will equip you with a comprehensive reference tool you'll return to often. Each study includes an opportunity for analysis, response, and further study in a response-oriented format. The thirty-nine books in this series are suitable for both personal and group use.
