FOCUSed15 Podcast – Episode #6 (Season 2)

Have you every wondered why we have four tellings of the life of Christ (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) instead of just one? Do you know what the commonalities are between them? Their differences? In today’s 15 minute episode, Chris and I tackle what you need to know about the Gospel of Mark. As the shortest Gospel—and the first written—the book of Mark is a great place to start if you want to study more about the life of Christ. Listen in to this quick 15 minute podcast episode to learn more about the book of Mark.


  • When the Gospel of Mark was written and why the date is important
  • Who Mark was and how he’s connected to the apostles
  • What a Synoptic Gospel is
  • Who Mark’s audience was and his main purpose for writing his book
  • The distinction between an apostle and a disciple
