The Gospel of Mark

Room 203
By: Lee Arnold

The gospel of Mark is the shortest of the four gospels, is considered by some to be the oldest of the four, and is the only one to actually refer to itself as a “gospel”.  So what is the “good news” that Mark desires to share, to whom was he sharing it to, and what is the reason for him sharing it? Mark’s gospel presents Jesus Christ as both the son of God and the Son of Man. In this gospel Mark shares how Jesus astonishes many with his teachings and his miracles, and yet is depicted as a “suffering servant”. What is the significance of each of the descriptions of Jesus, and how does this message of Mark, written almost 2000 years ago, have meaning for us today?
