The gospel of Mark is particularly concerned with correctly identifying Jesus of Nazareth. Who is the real Jesus? Mistaken Identity? aims to help students navigate their way through Mark's narrative, picking up the major concerns and drawing attention to its essential message.
^Mistaken Identity? follows the life of Jesus and examines the claims he made about himself. The great mystery of the Christ is revealed, God's suffering servant walks willingly to the cross and lays down his life for us all.
^^"Simon Smart has given us a brilliant tool for discovering Mark's Gospel in the classroom. I am using Mistaken Identity in with year 7 boys with a range of academic ability. All of them enjoy the variety of activities and tasks in the workbook and get a useful grip on how Mark shows us who Jesus is and what they ought to do about that"
