The Gospels...

We begin a new study with one of the Gospels, the Gospel of Mark:

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ (the Son of God). -Mark 1:1, NAB

Sacred Scripture is one of the most important parts of our faith.  Sacred Scripture, along with Sacred Tradition, creates the whole of what we know about our faith, from its history to its daily practices.  For this reason, we must study Scripture regularly, and this daily study is meant to help guide you.

When looking at Sacred Scripture, the Gospels take center stage.  The Gospels fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament while laying down the foundation for the rest of the New Testament.  The four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, are definitely the most important books of the Bible.

Recently, I was speaking with a friend who was about to complete RCIA.  He was knee deep in studying Scripture, and I asked him where he began.  "At the beginning, of course, in Genesis," was his answer.  But, is that the best place for us to begin studying the Sacred Scriptures?

If you are studying Scripture for the first time, especially if you are trying to read the Bible - not just study individual verses, I highly recommend beginning with the Gospels.  Luckily for you, this website will take you through, verse by verse, and we begin today with the Gospel of Mark.

For my regular readers, thanks for always being a part of the journey with me.  For those new to these daily readings, we're glad to have you on board.  See you tomorrow!
