    diction used in Mark is less suggestive of Jesus’ divine nature than in John. The most common title for Jesus in Mark’s gospel is “Teacher” or “Master,” plain human terms that emphasize the idea of serving others. Jesus is portrayed as the servant of God, but he is nonetheless the leader of the people on earth by virtue of his status as a prophet. Jesus being identified as “Teacher” is also important because Mark’s audience, the Gentiles, was relatively new to the faith, and Mark wanted to…

    The Gospel of Mark is often regarded as the gospel of swift action. The introduction in Mark is brief and we find ourselves very early entrenched in the ministry of Jesus. When we get to the 14th verse of chapter 1, we are introduced to the ministry of Jesus and provided a summary of his message, “Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”…

Jesus showcases his divine power by healing lepers, conducting exorcisms and eating with sinners (Mark 1-2). His rise in popularity is contrasted with the growing tension between Jesus and authorities, as seen with the accusation of the blasphemy from the scribes (Mark 2:6-7).…

    Testament was written in the first century. Some scholars date them toward the middle and others toward the end. Usually, the late dating of the gospels is based on knowledge and predictions around the destruction of the temple. That is since some do not believe in the message of the New Testament––they do not believe Jesus could predict future events––and so the gospels must have been written after AD 70 if they predict these events. This is unfortunate and ignores much of the evidence to the…

    The three passion predictions in the Gospel Of Mark have very similar structures. They each talk about the Son of Man suffering at the hands of other men and eventually dying then being resurrected after three days. Additionally, they also talk about how his followers were unable to comprehend what he was saying.
