Mark is the second of the four gospels. The book of Mark records the life of Jesus as a servant, or in other words, his time in ministry here on earth. Mark wrote mainly to the Romans and his style of writing seems to be quick and direct compared to Matthew’s writing. The central message of Mark is, “The Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” The book of Mark talks about the sanctification of Jesus, his services, his sacrifice, and his resurrection. Mark lets us know that Jesus is the ascended Lord, the Servant highly exalted, working in us and through us.
