In this exploratory journey through the pages of Mark’s Gospel, the author leads us discover Jesus' liberating proposal, in an overview from which we realize the dynamism that the God in the Bible never stops instilling in history, relationships, at meetings.
In this broad and mature perspective, the foundations of patriarchy (which oppresses men and women by imposing expectations, roles and norms to be followed) are radically questioned by the Gospel.
Mark tells us about Jesus meeting a male and female deeply wounded by the conditioning that patriarchal society imposed, and relates to them proposing paths of freedom and dignity.
It is Jesus who, through the liberating scope of his humanity, represents himself as the greatest counter-proposal to patriarchal society, offering himself as a definitely alternative model. That’s because he knows how to meet with people, recognizing in each one the dignity of those who are tremendously loved and loved by God for what they are, in their right to a fullfilled life.
