Mark: The Servant at Work

Artwork for God’s Masterwork, Volume 5: God With Us—A Survey of Matthew-Acts

Action. Movement. Involvement. Service. Eutheos is the Greek term repeated throughout the gospel of Mark, appearing nearly 40 times. It means “immediately.” Although the shortest of the four Gospels, the book of Mark wastes no words portraying the Saviour as a servant to others. The tone is practical, which appealed to the Roman mindset. We want to observe the Servant at work in this account of His life, noticing especially how clearly the key verse of the book (Mark 10:45) outlines the two major phases of His earthly existence and ministry.
