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

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.

Discussion for Mark 1

  • Irene123
    " ... and John was clothed with camel's hair and ate locusts and wild honey." John wasn't the reincarnation of Elijah (Elisha? sorry, can't recall which). Just as Elijah's mantle fell on Elisha - the mantle (Ordaining) fell on John. There was no 'reincarnation'; that's witchcraft and witchcraft is rebellion - 1 Sam. 15:23. And no, I did not MISQUOTE; I did not intend to quote.

    MARK 1:38 AND HE SAID UNTO THEM LET US GO INTO THE NEXT TOWNS THAT I MAY PREACH THERE ALSO FOR THEREFORE CAME I FORTH ---- ACTS 3:26 UNTO YOU FIRST GOD HAVING RAISED UP HIS SON JESUS SENT HIM TO BLESS YOU IN TURNING AWAY EVERYONE OF YOU FROM HIS INIQUITIES
  • Steve morrow
    MARK 1:14 NOW AFTER THAT JOHN WAS PUT IN PRISON JESUS CAME INTO GALILEE PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF KINGDOM OF GOD 1:15 AND SAYING THE TIME IS FULFILLED AND THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND --- REPENT YE --- AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL MARK 8:35 FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL LOSE HIS LIFE FOR MY SAKE AND THE GOSPELS SHALL SAVE IT
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus went about doing good. He healed all manner of diseases. He did it before and as the God that He is, He can do it over and over again. Let us present our sick bodies to him and our sin-sick souls for healing.
  • Irene123
    Yes, Jesus did heal from sickness, disease, but - that is not why He came among men. EVERYBODY, but everybody - knows why Jesus came to earth.
