Tradition has it that Mark's Gospel was written to sustain Christians in Rome during persecution and certainly the cost of discipleship is a key theme of his Gospel, This Bible study explores four passages in Mark and explores their challenge to our discipleship around money. The Feeding of the 5000 speaks of God's abundance in the midst of scarcity whilst the Widow's Mite challenges us to consider just living as well as generous giving. Peter's Confession, 'you are the Christ' is the turning point in Mark's Gospel and opens up Jesus' teaching on the cost of discipleship. The final study explores what it means to love God and our neighbour with all that we have, including our money. The pesonal daily devotional readings in Generous God, Generous People
are highly commended as a companion to this bible study and details of how to order hard copies are found on the Preach Mark!
