Mark, a Disciple and Evangelist was a missionary with Barnabus and Paul. Called a son by Peter. The Romans were his audience. His was the 1st gospel written about 40 to 65 A.D He depicted Jesus as the powerful servant of God. Key words were authority, and immediately, found in Mark verse 10;45. They were written fast paced and very visual. The fast facts: 23 miracles, with 13 parables, 5 sermons and 23 times the old testament is quoted. All but 4 chapters give at least one miracle. He wrote 16 chapters, 678 verses and almost 15,000 words. His was the 5th largest written in the new Testament. For his belief, he died a martyr. Posted by Picasa
