New Preaching Series by Pastor Steve: Gospel of Mark.
Background on The Gospel of Mark

Purpose: To present the person, work and teachings of Jesus

Author: John Mark. He was not one of the original disciples, but accompanied Paul on his first missionary journey (Acts 13:13). He also had a very close relationship with the Apostle Peter (I Peter 5:13)

To Whom Written: To Christians in Rome under persecution by Nero, where he wrote the Gospel.

Date Written: Between A.D. 55-65

Key Verse: “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life for many” (Mark 10:45).

Special Features: Mark was probably the first Gospel written. The other Gospels quote all but 31 verses of Mark. Mark records more miracles than does any other Gospel.
