Description

Mark's Gospel is the shortest of the four first-century books telling the story of Jesus of Nazareth, yet it is the most vividly told.

He writes of eager crowds and impressive miracles, of dramatic confrontation with opponents both human and demonic, building towards the final showdown in Jerusalem, where the cosmic drama of death and resurrection is played out.
