Talk scheduled on ‘The Challenging Texts of Mark’

A non-denominational talk. “The Challenging Texts of Mark,” on the Bible by Madelon Maupin, MTS, will be held on Saturday, April 28, from 2-3:30 p.m. at Christian Science Church, 6165 La Flecha, Rancho Santa Fe. The event is free.

This talk is for both new Bible students and those who have read for years. Maupin will dive into some of the more perplexing texts in this first Gospel written. What did Jesus have against fig trees? How does Mark’s portrait of Jesus differ from the other Gospels? What do they have in common? The goal will be to learn how to look at a Scriptural passage from many angles: historical, con-textual, geographical, political and spiritual.

Please come and bring your own questions, as well as your Bible.
