Discovering ... The Gospel of Mark
Seeing the Authority in the Work of the Servant
Written by S Scott Richardson
Mark tended to write in a way that would make people who were gentiles take notice by emphasizing the miracles and authority of Jesus even though He came to serve. It is very helpful for us to understand the background and circumstances of not only the writer, but the first readers, too. As we study Mark’s account of Jesus and His work of service, the context will help bring to life some great themes of this gospel, especially the themes of power, authority, and service.
