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  THIRTEEN

Jesus foretells the destruction of the temple and the calamities that shall precede it. The temple “temporary plaster” will fall.  There will be many signs and events.

Note:  Jesus referred to himself as a temple as well and in three days it will rise again.  John 2: 19 KJV   19Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21But he spake of the temple of his body. 22When, therefore, he rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

Jesus said, “Many shall come in my name and say they are Christ. Do not believe them”.  Nation against nation, earthquakes, famines, and troubles are the beginnings of sorrows.  The gospel must be published among all nations.  Brother shall betray brother to death, father the son, and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. And ye shall all be hated of all men for my name’s sake. He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 

Many will flee to the mountains.  Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:”   Mark 13:15  “And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take anything out of his house:” 

Mark 13:22 KJV  “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

The Second Coming: No one knows the day or hour, nor angels in heaven, nor the Son, only the father.  Therefore, the duty of believers is to watch: stay prayed up, know the will of God to have victory in the hard times. Praise  Give God all the glory, honor, and hallelujah. It is wise to fear God. Proverbs 9:10  “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” 

Fear the Lord, Love the Lord, and Obey the Lord.   Matthew 22: 37-40  KJV   37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment. 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. 40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 1.  Jesus’s prophecy of the destruction of the temple.  Mark 13: 1-7 KJV

1And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here2And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,” 

4Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? 5And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceives you: 6For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 7And, when ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things, must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 

 

 

2.  You will learn Jesus’ prophecy of the second coming and the signs of the second coming.  Mark 13: 8-23 KJV

 8For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. 9But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues, ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. 10And the gospel must first be published among all nations. 

11But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speaks, but the Holy Ghost. 12Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: 15And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take anything out of his house: 16And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. 

17But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 18And pray ye that your flight is not in the winter. 19For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 20And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

21And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: 22For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

 

 

3.  You will learn the timing of the second coming.  Mark 13: 24-32 KJV

24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 

27And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. 28Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: 

29So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. 30Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things are done. 31“Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.”   32But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 

 

4.  You will learn what believers are to do before the second coming.   Mark 13:33-34 KJV

33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

Call to salvation:

John 3:16  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 10:9-10  9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation. 

John 3:5-6  5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is the Spirit.
