Mark: A Journey With Jesus (Part 2)

Mark’s biography of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus is the shortest, but is thought to be the earliest of the four gospel accounts. The book has two clear themes that mirror how it is commonly divided: who Jesus is; and why he came. In that, Mark emphasizes that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and he tells us that Jesus came to suffer and die for sins on the cross, highlighting the great work of atonement accomplished there. Mostly drawing his content from his friend and ministry companion the Apostle Peter (who walked with Jesus), we can confidently trust that Mark’s testimony is faithful and true and that it will lead us on a journey with Jesus as well.
