Presenter: The Rev. Dr. Brett Younger, Plymouth Congregational Church, Brooklyn NY
Focusing on the Gospel of Mark, Dr. Younger discusses how Jesus’ ministry informs our call to ministry today. In Part 3, Dr. Younger focuses on Mark 8:27-38 and Mark 16:1-8. In speaking of the way Jesus challenges our deeply ingrained notions of who God is, he says those who want a peaceful life would do well to steer clear of Jesus. “Jesus disturbs our selfishness, challenges our prejudices, reorders our priorities,” he said. “Jesus wants to change us.” He suggests that Mark’s abrupt ending suggests that the Gospel is still being written through us.
