Favorite Brings “The Gospel of Mark” to the Stage
An estimated 6,001,500,000 Holy Bibles have been printed. Before the Gutenberg Bible was printed in 1450, however, most of the illiterate population’s access to the Bible was purely oral: a rich Jewish storytelling tradition that grew in the homes of the early Christian church and was later professed to the populace by church authorities. 

“The Gospel According to Mark,” a dramatic one-person performance by Jeffrey Favorite at 7:30 p.m. March 8-9 at Trinity on the Hill
