The Gospel
Gospel means Good News. They tell us about Jesus life mission and death.
Four Ways Christians Interpret the Bible
· literalism ­ every singe word in the Bible is literally true
· fundamentalism ­ the Bible is a factual historical record and it shouldn't be questioned
· conservative view ­ writers views and opinions have been written within the Bible inspired
by God so each word is not literally from God, we must use common sense and guidance
from the Holy Spirit to interpret it
· liberal view ­ authors were guided by God but as humans make mistakes everything
shouldn't be taken literally, the Bible can be interpreted symbolically as stories have a spiritual
deeper meaning

st
21 Century
After thousands of years Mark's Gospel still has authority, relevance and significance to
Christians today.
Mark's Gospel is a moral guide for us of how to act and behave in our life on
Earth to be good Christians so that we can receive eternal life in the Kingdom of
God. We must listen and follow it's teachings as it has been inspired by God and
has the words of which Jesus spoke. Even in this century there is still evil and
temptation in the world so we can look at the Gospel for help, support, inspiration
and advice. Jesus was human so he felt and went through everything we are
going through. He too went through hard and difficult times facing betrayal,
suffering, execution and death. But there is a happy ending and that is what we
must learn from the Gospel. We should persevere and lead a good life trying to
be a good disciple and follower of Jesus Christ because in the end all the hurt
and suffering we felt on Earth will go away when we are rewarded eternal life in
the Kingdom of God.…read more
