The Gospel of Mark is the most clear and concise of the four gospels, and it uses a quick-paced narrative style to tell the story of the suffering Servant who constantly engaged in other-centered ministry through healing, teaching, and preaching. This is a book that stresses the power of servanthood and the reality of finding our life by losing it for Christ’s sake just as He gave His life for our sake. Like the other gospels, Mark disproportionately emphasizes the final week of the earthly life of Christ with 40% of its material dedicated to the last eight days.
Chapters 1-4 emphasize the words of the Son of God, while chapters 5-7 focus more on His works. In chapter 6, Jesus teaches at Nazareth, sends out the twelve, feeds the multitude, walks on the water, and heals the sick wherever He encounters them.
READING of MARK 6
Lord, You identified with us in our humanity through the humility and servanthood of the incarnation. I give thanks for this and for the way You also demonstrated Your complete authority over nature, disease, demons, and death.
