The Gospel of Mark with Esau McCaulley – Episode 877

We’re continuing our Let’s Read the Gospels series today as we take a deep dive into the book of Mark with theologian and associate professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, Dr. Esau McCaulley. Y’all I’m going to wear out our WOWIE ZOWIE button before the end of this series! I’m so grateful for Esau and all he teaches us about the Gospel of Mark.
