This message concludes our study on the book of Mark. It examines the ending of Mark's Gospel, and argues for where the book originally ended: with fear and failure. It makes us long for a better response -- and leads us to not only the Gospel, but also the story of transformation of the disciples recorded in Acts. Although fear and failure have the last word in Mark, it is only the end of the beginning!

Also, there was a testimony before this message from Jim and Meri Parker about their journey raising their daughter who has special needs. You can find video and audio of that testimony under our News section or by clicking the link below.
