St. Mark is unique in its brevity and its vividness. It portrays a flesh and blood Jesus perhaps more simply and clearly than any other Gospel. It is said to have been drawn from the actual preaching of the Apostle Peter in Rome. It shows our Lord's divinity through his miracles and, in a special way, Mark sets out the stark demands and great rewards of true discipleship.

Many Catholics would like a better, clearer, firmer grasp of the prophecies which foretell the appearance of Christ as the Messiah of Israel. In this series we also look at the signs and teachings of Christ's second coming - a topic about which there is as much confusion as there is interest. How then should a serious believer look at these passages of Scripture? How should we interpret them? How can we apply their lessons and warnings? What a subject for solid teaching and lively discussion!

Among the written prophets of ancient Israel, after Moses, Isaiah has always held first place in the hearts of the teachers. His voice soars across the ages, the most majestic in Old Testament prophecy. Jesus quoted him often, and his prophecies of a coming Messiah are especially important for their grandeur and specific content. Every student of the Bible needs to draw deeply from Isaiah.

Hosea (salvation) is one of the most unusual books of the Bible - the story of a young prophet told to marry a beautiful prostitute, who after the birth of their children is drawn back to her old life. She is repeatedly unfaithful. It is a story of unrequited love and deep ingratitude, but it is also a story of a yet more presistent love, forgiveness and a plea for return (repentance). It is a picture of God's enduring love for his own wayward people. These lessons are rich in spiritual insight and passionate longing for the sinner's return.
