Today we begin a series called the SERVANT KING on Mark’s gospel account. Mark is one of the Synoptic Gospels, it is the shortest of the four Gospels and likely the first, or earliest to be written. It illustrates who Jesus is as a person with vivid detail of His teaching being presented more through what He did than what He said. The Gospel of Mark reveals Jesus the Servant. Mark was an attendant and observer of the apostle Peter and this, combined with what he had learned in his mother’s house (Acts 12:12) and from other leaders in the church, helped him to pen this gospel.
