    This is great!!!! I will post a link to this on my website. Also, if people are searching for some stuff on Mark, I have nearly 100 studies on my site. Go to www.michaelhalcomb.blogspot.com and click the “Studies in Mark” tab.

    Also, I have started an exploratory group on Facebook where about 100 people have joined for discussion. Thanks again for this great resource!!!
