Mark's Gospel Series Part 1, Mark 1:1-8, John The Baptist Prepares The Way


Mark’s Gospel 1:1-8 John The Baptist Prepares The Way Sean presents Part 1 of a new series from God's Squad CMC going through all of Mark's Gospel.

In this first one, he explores the beginnings of Jesus’ ministry beginning a long way from an obvious place of religious influence - out in the wilderness.
