Summary

Most historians agree that John Mark is the author of this account of the good news and it may have been one of the first Gospels written. Some believe that the timeline of the gospel being written was approximately some time between the years 65 - 70 AD, which was shortly after the death of Peter. There are details in The Good News According to Mark that are not in the other Gospels which lead historians to believe that this was written by someone who had been an eye-witness to these events. What also distinguishes this book among the other Gospels is the emphasis of the suffering of Yeshua. This could have been due to the fact that during the time in history around 65 AD, Christians in Rome were experiencing great persecution. Some believe that Mark was attempting to emphasize Yeshua’s suffering in order to bring comfort and encouragement to the Church which was suffering as a whole.

Love love love.

The only thing I would need is some kind of table of contents matching with the chapters of this audio version, so that I could locate the books and chapters I want to listen to.

Insightful

I enjoyed MacArthur's insights on the Gospel according to Paul. I really loved how he broke down Romans Chapter 1 verses 18-32
