The Gospel According to Mark

AboutThe sixteen chapters of this gospel take place in Jerusalem throughout the years that Jesus was alive (years 0~33 A.C.) The gospel demonstrates the following themes: revenge, sadness, fate and freewill, and humility. The book can be considered history or parable.

This story relates to how I feel about sacrificing for selflessness and morality. I would contentedly do little things for others that require modest amounts of my effort and time, even if it barely goes noticed. However, if I am required by God to sacrifice my all of my pride and life efforts to recieve eternal life, I would be extremely distraught and hesitant, even if it means that it would be put to good use and that I would enter heaven. At these times, I question my true faith in God, wondering why my countless deeds and endeavors are still not enough to be deemed worthy.

The story about Jesus calming the storm inspires me to always have faith in His mercy, even in the most dramatic circumstances

The Gospel According to Mark

Jesus stood up and commanded the wind, “Be quiet!” and he said to the waves, “Be still!” The wind died down, and there was a great calm. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Why are you frightened? Do you still have no faith?”But they were terribly afraid and began to say to one another, “Who is this man? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”(Mk. 4: 39-41)

First verse: This is the Good News about Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Mk. 1:1)Last verse: After this, Jesus himself sent out through his desciples form the east to the west the sacred and everliving message of eterna salvation(Mk. 16:10)

They were all terrified when they saw him.Jesus spoke to them at once, “Courage!” he said. “It is I. Don't be afraid!”(Mk. 6:50)

The story of Jesus walking on the water inspires me to believe that god will come to help and that I should believe in his miracles.

In this parable, Jesus speaks to a rich man who genuinely praises God and claims that he has obeyed all ten commandments since he was young. He asks his Teacher what he must do in order to enter the Kingdom of God. With love, Jesus instructs that he needs only to sell all his belongings and provide this money to the poor, then to come and follow Jesus. The man walks away, upset with his directions, because he is very wealthy. Then Jesus turns and states to his diciples that it is more difficult for the rich to recieve eternal life than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle because they would be required to sacrifice their wealth. At this, they are astonished, wondering "Who, then, can be saved?" Jesus tells them that people like themselves who hace left their families and homes to follow Him will recieve more than any rich man, as well as eternal life. "Many who are now first will be last and many who are now last will be first."

The Rich Man (Mk. 10:17-31)

The Gospel according to Mark presents the story of Jesus in a straightforward way, emphasizing what he did rather than his teachings. The chapters describe his life in Jerusalem until death.

Some people were there who wanted to accuse Jesus of doing wrong; so they watched him closely to see whether he would cure the man on the Sabbath. Jesus said to the man, “Come up here to the front.” Then he asked the people, “What does our Law allow us to do on the Sabbath? To help or to harm? To save someone's life or to destroy it?”But they did not say a thing. Jesus was angry as he looked around at them, but at the same time he felt sorry for them, because they were so stubborn and wrong. Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and it became well again.(Mk. 3:2-5)

This story demonstrates that Jesus will always be ready to assist those who come to him, and the accusers who search for sin will find nothing but his merciful miracles. It inspires me to ignore those who try to accuse the bible of faults.
