Mark’s Gospel, first published some 40 years after the events it describes, is seen by many to be the most authentic portrait we have of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Yet it was not supposed to be read silently, and in isolated passages, as it is so often today. Instead it was meant to be heard out loud and enjoyed in one sitting.
In this dynamic new, word-for-word, solo performance, Stefan Smart recreates for a modern audience the way in which the story was originally narrated – as a full bodied drama, with its many characters and nuances brought startlingly to life.
So sit back, relax, and imagine yourself among Mark’s first audience, as you experience the Good News of Jesus ‘as it was in the beginning’, in all its urgency and power, challenge and comfort.
