Concordia University Wisconsin is proud to be hosting An Evening Featuring a Dramatic Presentation of the Gospel of Mark on April 10 at 7 p.m. The free event, supported by a generous gift from the Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF), is open to the public and will take place in the University’s Chapel of Christ Triumphant in Mequon.
According to Rev. Dr. Ronald Mudge, CUW’s Pre-Seminary Director, the presentation is not a play based on the text, but rather a presentation of the text of Mark’s Gospel given by six “interpreters,” all of whom are either from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, or a Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregation.
The presenters will be: Rev. Dr. James Voelz (Mark 1:1 – 1:8), Rev. Dr. Dale Meyer (Mark 1:9 – 4:34), Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler (Mark 4:35 – 8:26), Rev. Dr. Kent Burreson (Mark 8:27 – 10:52), Rev. Dr. Ron Rall (Mark 11:1 – 13:37), and Rev. Dr. David Schmitt (Mark 14:1 – 16:8).
Dr. Mudge first saw the presentation last fall in Chicago and was instrumental in getting the presenters to come to CUW and in planning the upcoming April 10 evening. “This presentation makes the audience feel as if they’ve somehow walked into the Gospel of Mark and are witnessing the words and works of Jesus firsthand,” said Dr. Mudge. Following the presentation, audience members will have a chance to interact with the six performers as part of a ‘meet’ and ‘greet’. Questions?
