The Gospel of Mark
November 23, 2006
St. Mark is unique in its brevity and its vividness. It portrays a flesh and blood Jesus perhaps more simply and clearly than any other Gospel. It is said to have been drawn from the actual preaching of the Apostle Peter in Rome. It shows our Lord’s divinity through his miracles and, in a special way, Mark sets out the stark demands and great rewards of true discipleship.
