Overview of the Gospel of Mark

Mark “Mark John” is also known as “John” in the Book of Acts.  He is not John the Baptist.  Peter (disciple)  was a mentor to Mark.  Mark did not walk with Jesus but ministered under Peter.  Peter called Mark, his son.  Mark’s work was written in Italy around A.D. 50-70 before the Book of Acts.  Mark’s work is referred to as the “Memoirs of Peter” because he was very close to the disciple Peter and listen to everything Peter said.   The Gospel of Luke borrowed a lot of Mark’s notes. 

The Gospel of Mark focuses on the miracles that Jesus performed while spreading his ministry in Galilee.  Mark’s Gospel emphasizes Jesus Christ’s human nature, emotions, and limitations. *Note: This side of Jesus demonstrates that there aren’t any human conditions that he is not aware of and therefore his believers can know that he understands our problems and situations.

OVERVIEW OF  THE GOSPEL OF MARK CHAPTER  SIXTEEN:

Mark 16:1 “And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him (Jesus).”   The bolder (large rock) was removed and there sat a young man in a white robe that told them Jesus has risen and told them to tell the other disciples.   Mark 16:6  “And he saith unto them, Be not afraid: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: He is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.”   

Note: Jesus rose on the first day of the week, which is  Sunday, on the Hebrew calendar.  Today, in America in the month of April, Easter or Palm Sunday is the Holiday celebrated for the “Risen Christ”  signifying the completed work on the cross:  salvation.  Sunday is also the religious rest day – the Sabbath because it was chosen by the Catholic Church.  They changed it to the last day of the week instead of the first day because it was the day Jesus rose from the grave. The resurrection.

Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene, a disciple. He had cast out many demons from her.  She traveled with Jesus and the other disciples.  Mary told the other disciples she had seen Jesus but they did not believe her and went to see for themselves.  Jesus also appeared unto two men walking. He heard them speaking of him. He walked with them and had a conversation. Then he disappeared.  They went and told many and no one believed them. 

Note: It is interesting to note that an angel greeted the women to inform them of the “Risen Christ”. The women were the first to learn of Jesus’ resurrection.

Mark 16: 14-17 KJV   14Afterward, Jesus appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart because they believed not them which had seen him after he rose. 15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  “They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Note: Jesus sent the disciples out to preach the Gospel with the Holy Spirit that gave them power. Jesus commanded them to offer the gift of salvation with baptism.  They had the power to cast out devils, speak in tongues, take up serpents, and heal the sick.  The disciples were protected from deadly drinks and food.  God was with them until it was time for them to go to heaven. 

Mark 16: 19-20  So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven and sat on the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

1.   Jesus resurrection – (Easter Holiday – Psalm Sunday)  Mark 16: 1-13 KJV

1And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun. 3And they said among themselves, Who shall roll away the stone from the door of the sepulcher? 4And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

 5And entering into the sepulcher, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. 6And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. 7But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

 8And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulcher; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they anything to any man; for they were afraid. 9Now when Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. 10And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. 11And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. 12After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. 13And they went and told it unto the residue: no one believed them.

17And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  “They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
