MARK STANDS OUT AMONG THE OTHER GOSPELS, and it is sometimes
compared to an action-packed movie. There are many Hollywood-esque
themes--some that keep us on the edge of our seats, some that make
us cry, and some that leave us in wonderment.
The Gospel of Mark jumps right into the action of Jesus' story.
Mark offers little by way of introduction, mentioning nothing about
Jesus' family tree. Unlike Matthew and Luke, he doesn't include the
story of Jesus' birth. His account begins with a Scripture quote
and moves right into the preaching of John, the wandering prophet.
Jesus doesn't just arrive; He is announced.
Like the original Greek version of this Gospel, "The Voice of
Mark" is raw and to the point. Who is the Son of Man, and what
should that mean in believers' lives?
All who have ears to hear, let them listen.
(4:9, 23; 7:16)
