The Gospel of Mark, once overlooked due to its stark style, is now valued for its proximity to original events of Jesus’s life. Mark, the earliest of the Gospels, likely influenced Luke and Matthew. While lacking details like Jesus’s birth and certain parables, Mark vividly captures Jesus’s adult ministry. From his baptism by John the Baptist to his teachings, miracles, and conflicts with religious leaders in Galilee and Jerusalem. Mark underscores Jesus’s divine power yet consistent misunderstandings by even his closest disciples. The Gospel culminates with Jesus’s crucifixion, death, and resurrection, emphasizing his profound impact and the enduring message of his teachings.
