  The writer of the Gospel of Mark is usually identified with that Mark or John Mark mentioned in Acts, 87. This Mark was not of the twelve apostles; he was a cousin of Barnabas (Col. 4, 10), and apparently the son of that Mary in whose house the apostles lodged in Jerusalem. Hence he belonged to the next younger generation, and may or may not in his youth have been an eyewitness to many of the events he describes. He was at any rate in constant communion with the twelve great teachers, especially with Peter, and learned the entire story from their lips. He accompanied Peter to Rome, where he is generally supposed to have written his Gospel about the year 70 A. D. for the instruction of the Roman converts. Thus it was written under Peter's supervision, and has been regarded as embodying Peter's thought, in distinction from the Gospel of St. Luke, which expresses the teaching of Paul.

  This gospel is the briefest of the four. It contains very little not told by Matthew, but its viewpoint is distinctly different. It is addressed not to Jews but to Gentiles; hence it explains Jewish customs when these are mentioned, and it omits most of the references to the Old Testament. In brief the writer aims to show of Jesus not that He was the promised Messiah of the Hebrews, but that He was the wonderful God-man, come to teach and save all mankind.
