More Lessons From Mark
Mark wrote his gospel to a Roman audience so it is fast pace and active. Jesus is portrayed as the mighty God, the worker of miracles. Mark writes an account that moves from one event to another. It is a moving picture of Jesus’ ministry. Mark takes time to explain Jewish customs but omits Jesus’ Genealogy and childhood. Description is one feature and action is the other. Mark gives considerable attention to Jesus’ looks and gestures. Mark is a master story teller. You feel that you are right there as part of the audience. You can see yourself as part of the story. The Romans were more interested in power so we find in Mark’s gospel Jesus as the Conqueror of everything. He is first the conquering servant but He is also the Triumphant servant in His resurrection. Let Jesus conquer anything you face in your life.
