Introduction to the Gospel of Mark

Though the author does not directly identify himself, there is still strong evidence to attribute the Gospel to John Mark. In addition to Markan composition, church fathers also state that Mark was the interpreter of Peter, which would give reason to believe that he wrote his Gospel under the guidance or assistance of the apostle. [1] Like the other Gospels, the title "According to Mark" (KATA MARKON) is found in the earliest manuscripts.

The Authorship and Publication of the Gospel of Mark

By Ron Jones, D.D. The Titus Institute, 2010

The historical literary evidence demonstrates that Mark, the close associate of Peter the apostle, wrote the Gospel of Mark from the preaching of Peter and published it first in a private edition for the church at Rome and then in public edition for the church at large.

Gospel of Mark

The Gospel of Mark is the second book in the Christian New Testament and is one of the four gospels. Its traditional author is man named John Mark, a companion of Simon Peter, who wrote the gospel using Peter's eyewitness accounts.

The Gospel of Mark is 16 chapters long, shorter than the other three gospels. It is considered by most scholars to be the first of the four gospels written with a date between 50 and 70 CE.

Author: Although the Gospel of Mark does not name its author, it is the unanimous testimony of early church fathers that Mark was the author. He was an associate of the Apostle Peter, and evidently his spiritual son (1 Peter 5:13). From Peter he received first-hand information of the events and teachings of the Lord, and preserved the information in written form.

THE GOSPEL OF MARK

Who Wrote the Gospel According to Mark?
1. Who wrote the Gospel of Mark?

The Gospel of Mark is anonymous; there is no internal, direct evidence for its authorship. Only sometime during the second century was the title “According to Mark” or “The Gospel According to Mark” affixed to the work, in order to distinguish it from the other gospels. There is, however, internal, indirect evidence to consider. This evidence consists of certain characteristics of the gospel from which one can infer something about the identity of its author.

HISTORIAN CHALLENGES TRADITIONAL IDENTITIES OF GOSPEL AUTHORS

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John did not write the Gospels says biblical historian Gary Greenberg in his latest book, Who Wrote the Gospels? Why New Testament Scholars Challenge Church Traditions. At least, not the Matthew, Mark, Luke or John of Church tradition, he adds. Controversial as this view is, he notes that it is widely accepted among New Testament scholars. Yet few members of the lay public know about this modern scholarly consensus, let alone why scholars hold these views.
