The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.—Mark 1:1. Mark, the shortest—and perhaps the first—of the four Gospels, presents vignettes of Jesus in bold, on-the-go strokes. Mark’s was not a meek-and-mild Jesus. Instead, He is striking, forthright, and powerful. He attacks Satan’s realm, casts out demons, and raises the dead.

Join Dr. Thomas Shepherd, author of the forth-coming Seventh-day Adventist International Bible Commentary on the Gospel of Mark for an in-depth look at Jesus in action. Discover the power of “sandwich” stories, explore the revelation-secrecy motif, and watch as the Savior’s authority comes into conflict with the religious leaders of the day.

After Mark takes readers on real-time adventures with Jesus, he leaves the ending open, but not without a purpose. The Gospel of Mark ends with an appeal to the reader to go and tell the good news: Jesus is risen from the dead! Tell it to all the nations.
