Mark—Jesus the Suffering Son of God

Lecture no. 5 from the course: The New Testament

 Mark—Jesus the Suffering Son of God

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Mark is the shortest and oldest of the four Gospels. Its unknown author had access to oral traditions about Jesus. Mark orders these traditions into a portrait of Jesus as the authoritative but almost universally misunderstood Messiah and Son of God, whose mission is to suffer and die for the sins of the world.

Upfront, I admit I am turned off by the fact that he has an anti-christian agenda. Not sure why he does so many of these courses when it is widely known that he not only doesn't believe, but has disdain for those who do. However, his presentation is dry, is tied to a written script, and video quality is poor. There is some good information, however it's very stilted by his bias. Try "Story of a Book." Just started it, but seems much more interesting. Maybe Bart just had a bad day when he recorded these lectures.
