The Voice of Mark: Let Them Listen

Overview

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.

Overview

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)
