Question MARK: Chapter 4: Verses 21-25
Welcome to the seventeenth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'A Lamp on a Stand', I had the pleasure of the company of one of the humblest yet most quietly influential people I know, Dr Rich Roberts. Rich is a prominent author and theologian, a house church leader, a trustee of the Ffald-y-brenin Retreat Centre and a member of both the Gathering in the Holy Spirit (in the Vatican) and the Charismatic Leaders Fellowship in the US. What he has to share on this most enigmatic of Jesus’ stories is typically pastoral in nature, intellectually engaging and yet winsome and comforting. You don’t want to miss it.

Question MARK: Chapter 4 Verses 1-20
Welcome to the sixteenth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'The Parable of the Sower', I get to meet a real-life bishop - John Arnold, Roman Catholic Bishop of Salford in the UK. He tells me what it’s like to be a bishop, about his recent prominent role as a climate campaigner at COP26 in Glasgow and how this passage in particular speaks to our dire need for healing and for hope.

Question MARK: Chapter 3 Verses 20-21, 31-35
Welcome to the fifteenth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus is Accused by His Family', I was joined by renowned writer and actor, Jason Hildebrand, to talk about Chapter 3, verses 20-21, 31-35 of Mark's Gospel. It was pure genius to meet Jason, a fellow performer of greater experience and talent than I (check him out: https://www.jasonhildebrand.com). He’s got a simple message to pass on to people everywhere, of all shades of opinion or race, about the disarmingly inclusive love of the Eternal God. He shares a little of that extraordinary vision here. Get ready for a mind-and-heart blowing ride!
Question MARK: Chapter 3 Verses 20-30
Welcome to the fourteenth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus is Accused by Teachers of the Law', I was joined by Executive Producer of CMaxTV and Awakening the Domestic Church, the effervescent Deacon Darrell Wentworth, to talk about Chapter 3, verses 20-30 of Mark's Gospel. I don’t know what you will think, but for me this conversation flowed in a way that was very special, and very powerful. For a few short minutes the barrier between heaven and earth seemed very thin. You’ll see what I mean by tuning in for yourself.
Question MARK: Chapter 3 Verses 13-19
Welcome to the thirteenth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Jesus Appoints the Twelve', I was joined by playwright, actor, theatre producer and Canon of Bristol Cathedral, Neville Boundy to talk about Chapter 3, verses 13-19 of Mark's Gospel. What this conversation may have lacked in terms of close analysis, was more than made up for by what Nev had to say about the plight of the human race, our current desperate spiritual, economic and societal status - and how Mark speaks to it like no other story.
Question MARK: Chapter 3 Verses 7-12
Welcome to the twelfth episode of Question MARK! In this episode, 'Crowds Follow Jesus', I was joined by Stuart Bell, Senior Pastor of Alive! Church, Lincoln and founder of Ground Level Network, to talk about Chapter 3, verses 7-12 of Mark's Gospel. Once again we were left in awe as to the potentially revolutionary implications of this one short, apparently inconsequential passage of Scripture. Listen in and you’ll get what we mean.
