“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;”
King James Version (KJV)
1:1 The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ - The evangelist speaks with strict propriety: for the beginning of the Gospel is in the account of John the Baptist, contained in the first paragraph; the Gospel itself in the rest of the book. #Mt 3:1|; Lu 3:1
Mr 1:1 The Beginning of the Ministry of Christ SUMMARY OF MARK 1: The Mission of John the Baptist. His Preaching in the Wilderness. His Baptism in the Jordan. The Baptism of Jesus and the Anointing. The Temptation. Christ's Ministry in Galilee Begun. The Call of Four Apostles. An Unclean Spirit Cast Out. The Increased Fame of Jesus. Peter's Wife's Mother. Solitary Prayer. Preaching Throughout Galilee. Healing the Leper. The beginning, etc. This is a sort of title. The whole history of Jesus is an unfolding of the gospel. Gospel. Good news. Jesus. The personal name given by the angel (Mt 1:21), meaning "Savior". Christ. The official title of the Lord. It means "the anointed". Kings and priests were anointed in Israel, and Jesus, "the Lord's Anointed" (see 1Sa 24:10) is our Priest and King. They were anointed with oil; Jesus with the Holy Spirit (Ac 10:38).
