ABOUT THE CLASS:
Exegesis of Mark 9:30-42 In Light of the Greek Text
This class will look at the historical, literary, canonical, and theological context of this entire periscope with the ultimate purpose of more clearly defining who Jesus meant by “these little ones” in verse 42. The spiritual stakes are tremendously high, for to cause “these little ones” to stumble is to invite a drowning in the sea with a millstone around one’s neck. Just who are “these little ones” that Jesus is commanding us to treat with such special concern? We will look specifically at how the Greek text illuminates difficulties in understanding passages such as these.
