Which of the four gospels was the first written? It turns out that it was Mark’s gospel, also the shortest – only 16 chapters.
In this program, Fr. Mike explored the gospel of Mark from various angles. Scholars say it was written around 70 A.D., forty years after the death of Jesus.
It was probably written in Rome thousands of miles away from where it all happens. Fr. Mike compared Mark to a modern day reporter and how he got his facts.
He also compared Mark with the accounts of Matthew and Luke, telling what is missing in Mark and what is emphasized. One comes away after listening to this program with a deeper understanding of the Jesus Mark relates to us. Don’t miss Discovering Jesus – Mark’s Gospel on:
