Mark is one of the many books of the synoptic gospel. He reiterates, rather rapidly, what Matthew, Luke, and John will say, but with a Roman perspective. We see Mark as representing Christ as the servant and presents what Jesus did and Jesus at work. Mark points to work after work of the Lord recording all twenty miracles in detail. Mark also highlights the word “Straightway,” “immediately,” “forthwith,” which occurs 42 times in his book. Mark shows us that,”the son of man came to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Mark encompasses the purpose of Christ’s coming and the fact of his resurrection. It’s almost like a miniature version of the entire gospel. Mark reminds us that we are to go and make disciples who make disciples and impact a nation.
