Mark 1

Mark 1, the first chapter of Mark starts quickly by briefly telling about John the Baptist, Jesus baptism, his 40 days of fasting followed by the temptations from Satan.  Jesus called some of his Apostles and was going around proclaiming the Word of God and healing people.

One of the blessings of reading the Gospels and commenting on them in the manner that I have is to see more clearly than I ever how each of the authors of the story of Jesus tells the same story but emphasizes different things.  Each telling only strengthens your understanding of the will of God.

Preparing for NBS and reading 1 Kings about Elijah, I had never known that Elijah was a hairy man.  It seems that John the Baptist came not only in the spirit of Elijah but also had physical characteristics also.

Have a great day,
