Book Overview - Mark

by Thomas Coke


SAINT MARK is generally supposed to have conversed familiarly with Saint Peter, who mentions him as his son, that is, his disciple, 1 Peter 5:13. Possibly this was the same Mark whom Saint Paul took as a companion in his travels. See Acts 12:25. As Saint Matthew wrote his Gospel for the Jews more particularly, so Saint Mark seems to have written his for the use of the Gentiles. He wrote after Saint Matthew. The date of his Gospel is uncertain. It was probably written at Rome about the year 63.
