Saint Mark Agape Bible Study
The Gospel of Mark

The Gospel of Mark is the shortest of the four Gospels. Most of the events that are recorded in Mark are also recorded in the other Gospels, but St. Mark's narrative gives greater details in a vivid and moving account that tells more about the actions and emotions of Jesus than the other Gospels. The key term in St. Mark's Gospel is the Greek word euthus, which can be translated as "immediately," or "now," or "straightway." The word appears more often in Mark's Gospel than in the rest of the New Testament books combined, moving the reader forward at a fast pace toward the last eight days of Jesus' life and climaxing in Jesus' resurrection.
