Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1: 27



Each study in this series provides a series of questions for group discussion. The studies follow a thematic pattern and so some studies focus on a number of related passages from James. This is a thorough biblical study, so even if you have read it before the most important part of any study is to read the book right through. We encourage you to read James now.

Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people. Mark 1:17
Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. Mark 8:34


Mark's aim is to tell the compelling story of Jesus, and to answer the question "Who is this man?" This is the most important question anyone can ask in his or her life. Mark's Gospel gives us an exciting answer to this burning question; a gripping portrait of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As the readers of the Gospel have their own defining moments, they hear the call to follow Him in discipleship that is characterised by giving themselves to a costly, selfdenying, faith-filled 'kingdom of God' mission. So let us use Mark's Gospel as our guide to following Jesus today. Let the great adventure begin.
