Gospel of Mark Bible Study
According to most biblical scholars today, when the authors of the gospels attributed to Matthew and Luke (and maybe John) sat down to put pen to paper they most likely had two sources to help them. One was a mysterious document that scholars have named “Q” (for quelle), now lost, and the other was the Gospel of Mark.
Although there is debate concerning the date, most feel that the Gospel of Mark was written by the companion of Paul’s named Mark, before the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the temple by Roman troops in the year 70 CE. If so, it is the only Gospel written before that calamitous event and impacts our reading of Mark. Somewhat short, Mark’s Gospel is the story of Jesus, from wandering preacher and healer in Galilee to Savior on the cross in Jerusalem.
