The popular bible study experiment that is @tweetinMark has begun.
These tweets below are the ones that have been Sent or Retweeted by @tweetinMark for the week. We were pretty excited Week One so there are a fair few tweets for Mark1:1-20 coming out of our Melbourne based context with Urban Seed and the Seeds Network…The nature of prologues perhaps! I doubt there will be this many each week but lets see how we go! Sadly I haven’t quite worked a way to list them in forward sequence as yet so if you are keen to follow the flow of the story you should start at the bottom and work your way up!
If you wish to interact more with the tweetinMark discussion feel free to follow and offer comments from or about your own context at www.twitter.com/tweetinMark or on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/tweetinMark/104413102931191 We jumped from 5 followers on each at the start of the week to 40 and 60 respectively, and from all over the world, which was an encouraging start.
Hoping this medium can serve some small role in helping you know and live The Word in your world.

also a ref 2 Exodus 23:20 http://ow.ly/1sxGE made on the eve of an insurgency of liberated slaves. Is this how Mark’s Jesus is gunna roll?
12:20pm, Apr 06 from HootSuite
also a ref to Malachai 3:1 suggesting God is coming 2 judge the corrupt Temple system. An early hint of Mark’s Jesus own anti Temple agenda!
12:20pm, Apr 06 from HootSuite
Mark gives a nod to the great tradition of Hebrew prophetic spirituality. Prepare the Way (Isaiah 40) http://ow.ly/1sxE9 A comfort or…

Tell a story of a “wilderness experience you have had. Prayerfully re-read it alongside Mark’s prologue.
12:05pm, Apr 06 from HootSuite
Wilderness=place of waiting & preparation. Many groups seeking freedom from Rome started there. http://ow.ly/1rMyV A symbol loaded with hope
11:55am, Apr 06 from HootSuite
Mark 1:2-3 http://ow.ly/1sxzy Cry in the Wilderness…Prepare “the Way” which becomes a central metaphor for discipleship in Mark’s story

Euangelion=Roman “good news” of victory = bad news 4 losers! Imagine having to shop with these: http://ow.ly/1quqWz. Wot gospel will JC be?
12:35pm, Apr 05 from HootSuite
Mark 1:1 Greek word 4 “Gospel” = euangelion a Roman word 4 military victory. Mark pits good news of Jesus in war of myths with Roman Empire!
9:15am, Apr 05 from HootSuite
Mark 1:1 “The beginning” It’s like saying “The Dreaming” 2 an indigenous Aussie. Wot r the foundational stories 4 your own life/culture?
9:00am, Apr 05 from HootSuite
8:55am, Apr 05 from HootSuite
Mark 1:1 “The beginning…” Mark connects listeners 2 the great story of their culture (Genesis 1:1a) An invite 2 re-create everything!
