41. Mark: The writer of this Gospel Mark, also called John (Acts 12:25), is the son of Mary of Jerusalem (Acts 12:12). We know that John Mark was a cousin of Barnabas (Colossians 4:10) he may have been a Levite (Acts 4:36). Mark accompanied Paul and Barnabas in their first Missionary journey (Acts 12:25), but Mark turned back (Acts 13:13). For this reason, Paul refused to consider taking him along on the second missionary journey (Acts 15:36-39). Since both Paul and Barnabas had strong opposite feelings about the matter, they decided to go different directions, Paul with Silas and Barnabas wit Mark. However, much later, Paul felt differently about Mark (2 Timothy 4:11). Mark presented Christ as God’s son in action, demonstrating His divinity by His miracles.
