Wesley's Notes for Mark 1:1


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

Discussion for Mark 1

  • Eutychus
    verse 20...leaving their father and the 'hired servants'...same Greek word "misthotos" used (only other time in NT), to define paid preachers...John 10:12,13. "But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, AND LEAVETH THE SHEEP". "the hireling fleeth BECAUSE HE IS AN HIRELING.

    So much for a paid pastorate...In Jesus' opinion at any rate.

    Olu: Jesus (oh I love that name Jesus) is God but he lived his life as a man on earth. He has all the attributes of a man on earth. He became a man in other to qualify to save man. He came to teach us how to activate God's word to get result. Verse 12 shows that He prepared well before starting the soul winning job. Imagine, He just say "follow me" and its done. The job is easier when prepared.

    Olu william; Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea of His mother Mary...Jesus Christ came in the flesh to save us all from our sins and the power of darkness, reconciling us to God BY HIS BLOOD! The Apostles were chosen from among MANY witnesses to testify the Glad Tidings of the grace of God THROUGH JESUS DYING ON THE CROSS FOR US! JESUS IS A PERSON!

    Joy olubunmi. Jesus Christ is not a person. He is the son of God. God himself
  • Pastor AB Parker
    The same Jesus......mark 1(25-28) Sodom and Gomorrah Times ....was not paying God any attention....serve God all the way.....can’t do and go certain places when u are saved....it’s not over God turned it around for my good.....he’s the same God this the created and deliver....encouraging your self enough power to rebuke the devil and enemies
