Question MARK: Chapter 3 Verses 20-30
Welcome to the fourteenth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus is Accused by Teachers of the Law', I was joined by Executive Producer of CMaxTV and Awakening the Domestic Church, the effervescent Deacon Darrell Wentworth, to talk about Chapter 3, verses 20-30 of Mark's Gospel. I don’t know what you will think, but for me this conversation flowed in a way that was very special, and very powerful. For a few short minutes the barrier between heaven and earth seemed very thin. You’ll see what I mean by tuning in for yourself.

Question MARK: Chapter 3 Verses 13-19
Welcome to the thirteenth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus Appoints the Twelve', I was joined by playwright, actor, theatre producer and Canon of Bristol Cathedral, Neville Boundy to talk about Chapter 3, verses 13-19 of Mark's Gospel. What this conversation may have lacked in terms of close analysis, was more than made up for by what Nev had to say about the plight of the human race, our current desperate spiritual, economic and societal status - and how Mark speaks to it like no other story.

Question MARK: Chapter 3 Verses 7-12
Welcome to the twelfth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Crowds Follow Jesus', I was joined by Stuart Bell, Senior Pastor of Alive! Church, Lincoln and founder of Ground Level Network, to talk about Chapter 3, verses 7-12 of Mark's Gospel. Once again we were left in awe as to the potentially revolutionary implications of this one short, apparently inconsequential passage of Scripture. Listen in and you’ll get what we mean.

Question MARK: Chapter 3 Verses 1-6
Welcome to the eleventh episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus Heals on the Sabbath', I was joined by Bradley Jersak, Dean of Theology & Culture, St Stephen's University, Canada, and celebrated author of 'A More Christ-like God', to talk about Chapter 3, verses 1-6 of Mark's Gospel. If you've ever wondered about the practical usefulness of following a Podcast about just one book of the Bible, then this episode will disabuse you. Bradley Jersak gives the most inspired performance I’ve ever heard about the way the Scriptures work together as a cohesive unit and how a small section of Mark's Gospel can change your thinking…well, about literally EVERYTHING!

Question MARK: Chapter 2 Verses 23-28
Welcome to the tenth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath', I was joined by Bible teacher, church leader and all round nice guy, Sim Dendy, to talk about Chapter 2, verses 23-28 of Mark's Gospel. You'll love what Sim had to say about the meaning of 'Sabbath' in this passage and its continuing importance for us all in the twenty first century. I was also struck by Sim's appreciation of some ingenious use of word play on Jesus's part. Not to be missed!

Question MARK: Chapter 2 Verses 18-21
Welcome to the ninth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus Questioned About Fasting', I was joined by Hollywood impresario Marc Whitmore, to talk about Chapter 2, verses 18-21 of Mark's Gospel. Marc divides his time equally between Los Angeles and London, and is the manager of numerous talented musical acts and performers across the world. You'll enjoy his inspiring take on the creative potential of the Gospel narrative and how it must have been received by its original listeners.

Question MARK: Chapter 2 Verses 13-17
Welcome to the eighth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus Calls Levi and Eats With Sinners', I was joined by Historian and Former Headmaster of King Edward VI School, Southampton, Julian Thould, to talk about Chapter 2, verses 13-17 of Mark's Gospel. Was this the best ever show? I was tempted to think so. (But then I had thought that after every one of the eight episodes thus far!). Give it a listen and tell us what YOU think.

Question MARK: Chapter 2 Verses 1-12
Welcome to the seventh episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralysed Man', I was joined by Senior Leader of Pioneer International, Billy Kennedy, to talk about Chapter 2, verses 1-12 of Mark's Gospel. We had an amazing time and I was deeply struck by Billy's almost visionary understanding of the passage's significance for life now as well as for the time it was written. I trust you will be, too!
