Mark's gospel is different from that of the other gospel writers is that Mark never met Jesus in person. During the growth of the early church, Mark became close friends with the apostle Peter and Mark's gospel writings undoubtedly have as their source Peter's accounts of his time with Jesus. It is a rich and complimentary gospel to both the gospels of Matthew and Luke. Mark's gospel focuses on the works and words of Christ and their effect on those who experienced Jesus miracles and heard His teaching. God's Word through Mark is as effective for the heart of the contemporary reader as it was when Jesus spoke these words directly to the people of His time.

Pastor Tim's other Tues Bible study videos
Pastor of Care
Hi, I’m Pastor Tim. I’ve been a part of the Bethlehem family my entire life, 61 years and counting! Born, raised, and educated at Bethlehem’s day school, I went on to high school and then to college in the Denver area. I graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a Master’s degree in Physics and worked for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for 37 years. I retired from NREL in 2018 and became part of a small company that develops large scale solar power technology. Several years ago, I felt a pull to the ministry and so went back to school as a student at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. In early 2016, I was ordained and called as a pastor here at Bethlehem. My wonderful wife Sandy, whom I met here at Bethlehem 37 years ago also serves here at Bethlehem as our Director of Discipleship. As a part-time pastor, my main ministry areas are pastoral care and visitation, Bible teaching and Senior ministry. I also sing with our contemporary worship teams. In my spare time I spend time with my wife, my extended family and golf. There is a reason I have been at Bethlehem my entire life. By God’s grace, this wonderful Christ centered faith community has been and will continue to be my extended family for years to come. I pray it can be yours as well. May you find the love and gifts of Christ here at Bethlehem!
