Overview

There aren’t many stories of Mary in the Gospels, but the stories we do have tell us more about Mary and her relationship with both Jesus and us than we probably realize.

In Mary: Jesus’ Mother—and Ours , Six Weeks with the Bible series editor Kevin Perrotta looks closely and thoughtfully at six key episodes in the Gospels in which Mary figures prominently, including the angelic announcement of Jesus’ birth to Mary, the wedding in Cana, and the crucifixion of Jesus. In addition to the Gospel stories themselves, Perrotta provides essential facts on the culture and context in which each episode is set, as well as additional information on Mary that comes from  Church Tradition.

WhileMary: Jesus’ Mother—and Ours can be used by individuals engaging in private Scripture reading, it is an ideal resource for group Bible study. Each session contains many helpful questions for discussion, and a group prayer experience concludes each session. A “How to Use This Guide” section at the start of the book makes it easy for even a novice to serve as group facilitator.

For all who are interested in deepening their understanding of and relationship with Mary, this book is sure to serve as an excellent starting point.

The Six Weeks with the Bible series of Bible discussion guides offers both in a concise six-week format. Whether focusing on a specific biblical book or exploring a theme that runs throughout the Bible, these practical guides in this series provide meaningful insights that explain Scripture while helping readers make connections to their own lives.
