Mark

Details, Please (Part 2)

Mark addresses a Gentile audience, portraying Jesus as a man of action, divinely capable of healing the sick, controlling nature, and battling the powers of Satan. Mark’s theme of the suffering servant comes through in his narratives of Jesus’ interaction with hostile doubters – the Jewish leaders, who want to kill Him (9:31); His neighbors, who take offense at Him (6:3); and even His own family members, who think He’s crazy (3:21).
