Most believe that the gospel of Mark was the first of the gospels to be completed. Many also believe that Mark wrote down what Peter proclaimed. It is a gospel of action; Jesus does things. In addition, the gospel asserts that Jesus is the Son of God and spends a great deal of time with the last journey of Jesus to Jerusalem and the Savior’s suffering and death there.
