The New Testament gives us not just one but four gospels, each with its unique perspective on Jesus.

When | Monday 15 January, 7.30pm – c.9pm

Where | St Albans Cathedral and Online 

Cost | £10 (£6 students)

Speaker | The Revd Dr Kevin Walton, Canon Chancellor 

In this year’s church lectionary, we are invited to follow Mark’s gospel. In this lecture Canon Kevin Walton opens up the particular features of what is now considered to be the first and unique attempt at what we now call the ‘gospels’, including its particular literary style and its response to that crucial question posed to Peter, and through him, to the reader: ‘Who do you say that I am?’ Finally, we ponder on the mysterious, abrupt ending of the earliest versions of the gospel – has an original ending been lost, or was it intended this way?
