The Gospel
of Mark
Chapter 1
The Gospel of Mark was the first of the gospels to be written, sometime around 70 A.D., about forty years after Jesus died. It is the shortest of the gospels, and contains the most action, as it recounts how Jesus moved from town to town, spreading his message of hope for the poor and all those who were suffering under Roman rule.

It became the basis of two of the other gospels, and inspired hundreds, perhaps thousands of paintings. We have gathered the best here to illustrate each part of the gospel.

The Gospel of Mark, Chapter 1
Painting of John the Baptist wearing camel hair, by El Greco.
6 John wore clothes made of camel hair, with a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild honey. 7 This is what he had to say: “After me someone is coming who is greater than I am. I’m not worthy to untie his sandals. 8 I baptized you in water but he will baptize you in the Holy Spirit.”
