Mark



The Book of Mark is the second book of the New Testament of the Bible, and the second of the Four Gospels. The book of Mark includes the preaching and message of John the Baptist, the baptism and temptation of Jesus, and Jesus begins work in Galilee; Jesus goes from Galilee to Jerusalem – in which he chooses his 12 disciples then give instructions what the disciples should do; the death of John the Baptist; Jesus teaches and preaches through stories and parables, Jesus heals, and Jesus delivers the Sermon on the Mount; the last week of Jesus – the last supper, his trial and death; and the resurrection of Jesus from his death; and Jesus appears to his followers.




The Book of Mark is the shortest of the four books of the New Testament that tells us about the life, teachings and preaching of Jesus. However, it is also full of action. From the start of the ministry of Jesus, he worked through many amazing miracles. After choosing his four disciples, all of them fishermen, right away, Jesus performs miracles of healing, including the man possessed with an evil spirit, crowds of sick people, a man with leprosy, among others. Mark repeatedly tells how Jesus healed people, and that he did them by the power of God.




This book is full of miracles of Jesus that amazed not only the people but even his followers. According to Mark, the most significant and powerful miracle of Jesus was his suffering and death. It was a Roman soldier, the first person who saw Jesus die on the cross who said that Jesus indeed was the Son of God as found in Mark chapter 15, verse 39.




The first followers of Jesus to discover the empty tomb were three women, who were told by the angel not to be afraid, that if they are looking for Jesus from Nazareth who was nailed to a cross, God has raised him to life.
