Why Gospel of Mark?

We chose Gospel of Mark as the weekly reading for the Out-Reach Small Group. Why? Here are five reasons:

  1. The writer of “Mark” who first put the words, works and last week of Jesus’ life into a coherent whole.
  2. It is the earliest of the four Gospels and is the closest to Jesus’s time.
  3. It is the rawest of the gospels. It is the most unpolished, with a lot of rough edges.
  4. It is the most focused of the gospels.
  5. Mark is the shortest gospel.

The focus is to portrait Jesus as the “suffering Messiah”, and the “servant savior”.
