Mark 1v1: Here begins the wonderful story of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God
Have you ever examined the life of Jesus? Read the story from the Bible yourself. That gives you a picture from the text rather than what is given from a representative?
Find a Bible and read the part called Mark. Check what it says to you about Jesus, his life, and the people he mixed with. Who was he in conflict with, and who were the people who liked him? You might be surprised, and might even see comparisons with Christianity today.
Check what he said about himself, like the Messiah – the promised Saviour, and Son of God.
If this is something you think you would do perhaps talk to God with these words (a prayer).
Dear God, I am going to read about Jesus. May I learn about who he was, what he said, and how this can affect my life now. In Jesus name. Amen
