Mark sets forth the credentials of Jesus, the son of God. In pithy statements and brief paragraphs. Mark captures the ministry of Jesus but focuses more on what Jesus does than what he says. The theme of Marks gospel is that Jesus service and sacrifice provide the pattern of living for His followers. What it is to be a servant and all the responsibilities that come along with it are demonstrated in this book. The miracles that take place in this book are amazing and remind me how powerful a God we serve.
