My goal in this site is to develop something that expresses the message of Jesus in various forms, including games, apps, and writing.
My outlook is that we must filter our view of the world, including our view of the Bible, through the teachings of Jesus. For that reason, everything on this site is looped back to examine Jesus example and life as seen through the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John).
I also want to support the ministry of Breakfast in the Basement, a new faith community meeting in the Unadilla United Methodist Church, Unadilla, NY; so to that end, I list the topical study this community is undertaking this coming year.

Journey with Jesus:
Come share the journey of Jesus through the book of Mark.
Some background into the book of Mark: The book is the earliest Gospel placed in the cannon of scripture, Written around 67 AD. It is however not necessarily the first Gospel written as most scholars now agree that the extra-Biblical Gospel of Thomas predates Mark. It was written by John Mark, a companion of Peter, while in Rome from stories told to Mark by Peter in the time before his execution. It is written as something of a short story, not necessarily in chronological order, but utilizing a number of intriguing literary devices.
Most scholar refer to the depition of Jesus in Mark as the "Suffering Servant", which is true; however, I prefer to see Mark simply as depicting a very human Jesus, much more so than depictions found in later Gospels.
