Mark Study

What Is Mark Study?
In Mark Study students delve deeply into scripture together, seeking to understand its meaning and how it might be relevant to their lives. Students who join the study will learn to interpret the text, make use of dictionaries of scholarship and other tools, and have their lives changed through the process. Mark study is offered in three parts. We are offering Mark 1 as a weekly class during spring semester 2013. This study is offered to Claremont Colleges students only. Special permission is required for non-students to participate.

What to bring:
  • $2 for a printed manuscript
  • A pen 
  • Colored pens or pencils are suggested, but not required

Unlike other fellowship activities, Mark study has an attendance policy: students may only miss 2 sessions over the semester. After 3 or more absences we require students to drop out of the class, with the option of taking it again some other time (like at Summer Conference, May 20-25, 2013). The reason for this policy is that our study will build each week on things discussed in previous weeks. If students miss too many sessions they cannot participate in this cumulative learning process.
