Gospel of Mark Goes on Tour in September

For several decades, scholars have increasingly placed the Gospel of Mark in an oral context, believing it to be a written document intended to be read aloud to a gathered audience. This presentation of the text of Mark’s Gospel reenacts the way in which it might have impacted those who first received it.  The English translation of Mark’s Gospel used in this presentation has been prepared by Dr. James W.Voelz, professor of exegetical theology at Concordia Seminary, who has recently completed a commentary on Mark chapters 1-8.This dramatic interpretation of the Gospel of Mark is performed by six pastors, including four Seminary faculty members. Last year, there were two performances on the campus of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. This year, the Gospel of Mark will be proclaimed in St. Louis, MO; River Forest, IL; and Valparaiso, IN.This experience is not simply a recitation of Mark’s text, neither is it a play based upon it; you will hear the Gospel of Mark in a new and emotional way. Allow the words to wash over you and the proclamation of rule and reign of God in Jesus Christ to confront you. St. Mark will enthrall you with his words, his images, and his message.

All performances are free, but some require reservations. See below:
