In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He [Jesus Christ -Yeshua] was in the beginning with God.


The book of Mark is the second of the five books of gospels and acts. It was written by a Jewish follower of Jesus whose first name was John with the surname of Mark. Mark presents Jesus, as Christ, the Messiah, the Son of Man, who did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.

Mark begins with the ministry of John the Baptist as he is baptizing believers in water. John introduces Jesus as the mighty One who will baptize believers with the Holy Spirit. During His ministry, Jesus stressed the necessity of serving others. To be great in the kingdom of heaven, one must be a servant. To be first, one must be a slave to all. Jesus is the Servant who continuously ministered to others through His preaching, teaching, miraculous healings, and most of all, His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins.
