(John was his Jewish name, and Mark his Roman name.) 1. Mark was the son of Mary and a cousin to Barnabas (Col. 4:10). He was a resident of Jerusalem (Acts 12:12).Writer, Audience, Perspective: Writer, Audience, Perspective 2. Mark accompanied Paul and Barnabas on their 1 st missionary journey and Barnabas on his 2 nd missionary journey. ~ Mark deserted Paul and Barnabas before their missionary journey was finished (Acts 13:13). The four possible reasons for his desertion are: a. Immaturity b. He didn't feel "called" to the work, so he eventually left. c. A jealous dislike for Paul. d. He didn't like the Gentile emphasis in Paul's evangelism. ~ Mark asked for permission to go on the second journey. Paul refused and took Silas to travel with him. Barnabas took Mark and went in another direction (Acts 15:36- 41). Years later, Mark regained Paul's confidence and was with him in Rome (Col. 4:10-11; 2 Tim. 4:11).Writer, Audience, Perspective: Writer, Audience, Perspective 3. Mark may have been referring to himself when he spoke of "the young man" in 14:51-52; 16:5. 4. The date of his writing may have been 65 - 68 A.D.Writer, Audience, Perspective: Writer, Audience, Perspective B. Mark appears to have written from Rome to Romans. 1. The early church fathers held this belief. 2. In his gospel he uses 16 words that he transliterated from Latin (the language of the Romans) to Greek. 3. He explains typical Jewish customs, which wouldn’t have been necessary if he had been writing to Jews (2:18; 7:3-4). 4. Mark uses only Roman terms when referring to money. 5. He refers to time according to the Roman method of 4 watches in the night, instead of the Jewish method of 3 watches.Writer, Audience, Perspective: Writer, Audience, Perspective C. Mark seems to see Christ through the eyes of Peter. 1. Mark and Peter knew each other well (1 Peter 5:13). 2. Mark may have been one of Peter's converts. 3. The early church fathers believed Mark wrote his gospel based upon Peter's recollections. 4. Mark emphasizes the servanthood of Jesus, just as Peter does in his two letters.Distinctive Features: Distinctive Features Mark presents Jesus as the Servant. ~ A king speaks, but a servant works. Matthew presents Jesus as a King and emphasizes His parables. Mark presents Him as a Servant and emphasizes His miracles, i.e., His works (20 miracles in Mark). B. Mark is a book of action. Mark contains no genealogy of Christ or reference to His virgin birth. D. Mark contains none of Jesus' great discourses. All of Jesus' teachings in Mark are based upon Christ's actions. ~ The only parables in Mark are: 4:3-20 (the parable of the soils); 4:26-29 (the parable of the seed); 4:30-32 (parable of the mustard seed); and 12:1-11 (the parable of the murderous husbandmen)Distinctive Features: Distinctive Features 1/3 of Mark's gospel focuses on the Passion week.
