AQA Spec A Option 1C

Basically, this is just all of my RS notes in the one file. It's quite long- about 50 pages- but it has notes on all the topics, questions on the topics and an exam question section at the end.

A.1 Introduction to Mark's Gospel
Mark did not sign his Gospel so there is no real way of knowing who wrote it. The earliest reference we have

He quotes Papias, Bishop of Hierapolis (c. 130 AD), who recorded a tradition which he claimed was handed
down by an elder, that Mark was a companion of Peter.…read more

A.2 Understanding Mark as the Word of God
The word 'Gospel' comes from an Old English word 'godspel' which simply means 'Good News'. It is
often used to translate the Greek word 'evangelion' which literally means 'Good News'. It is from this
Greek word that we get the word 'evangelist' meaning 'someone who spreads Good News'. It could be
argued, therefore, that Mark is not so much writing a book as spreading a message to others.…read more

Baptism Today
Baptism still plays an important part in the life of the Christian Church today. Many see it as an important
step in becoming a Christian, part of the Church and, more importantly, a member of the kingdom of God.
It is seen as an important stage in the Christian life. In the Catholic Church it is one of the three
sacraments of initiation, the others being confirmation and the Eucharist.…read more

B.2 Faith and Prayer
Jairus' Daughter (Mark: 5:21-24, 35-43)
We are told that Jairus was an official of the local synagogue. Jesus had quickly began to get a reputation
not only as a miracle worker but also as a preacher who was not concerned about breaking the law if it
meant doing God's will. Not surprisingly Jesus had made many enemies on his travels not least among the
Jewish officials.…read more

The Epileptic Boy (Mark: 9:14-29)
Jesus returned with Peter, James and John after his Transfiguration and rejoined the other disciples. Prior
to this event Jesus had sent the disciples off on their own (Mark 6:7-13). On their return they had told
Jesus about their successes (Mark 6:30). Now they had encountered failure. A man had brought his son
to them who had an unclean spirit in him.…read more
