Gospel Of Mark
The GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK (Greek : τὸ κατὰ Μᾶρκον εὐαγγέλιον, _to kata Markon euangelion_), the second book of the New Testament , is one of the four canonical gospels and one of the three synoptic gospels . It tells of the ministry of Jesus from his baptism by John the Baptist to his death and burial and the discovery of the empty tomb – there is no genealogy or birth narrative, nor, in the original ending at chapter 16, any post-resurrection appearances . It portrays Jesus as a heroic man of action, an exorcist , a healer, and a miracle worker. Jesus is also the Son of God , but he keeps his identity secret , concealing it in parables so that even the disciples fail to understand.
