Bible : Mark

The Gospel According to Mark (Greek: τὸ κατὰ Μᾶρκον εὐαγγέλιον, to kata Markon euangelion), is one of the four canonical gospels and one of the three synoptic gospels. It tells of the ministry of Jesus from his baptism by John the Baptist to his death and burial and the discovery of the empty tomb – there is no genealogy of Jesus or birth narrative, nor, in the original ending at chapter 16, any post-resurrection appearances. It portrays Jesus as a heroic man of action, an exorcist, a healer, and a miracle worker. Jesus is also the Son of God, but he keeps his identity secret (the Messianic Secret), concealing it in parables so that even the disciples fail to understand. All this is in keeping with prophecy, which foretold the fate of the messiah as suffering servant. The gospel ends, in its original version, with the discovery of the empty tomb, a promise to meet again in Galilee, and an unheeded instruction to spread the good news of the resurrection.

Mark probably dates from 66–70 CE.It appears as the second New Testament gospel because it was traditionally thought to be an epitome (summary) of Matthew, but most scholars now regard it as the earliest written gospel.They also reject the tradition which ascribes it to Mark the Evangelist, the companion of the apostle Peter, and regard it as the work of an unknown author working with various sources including collections of miracle stories, controversy stories, parables, and a passion narrative.

加拉太書

加拉太書 Galatians (粵語) 主要內容 保羅為自己的使徒職分辯護 (覆蓋1:1-2:14)。問候了加拉太的各會眾後,保羅奇怪他們竟然這麽快便離開真理,轉而信從另一種好消息。他堅決宣布:“無論是我們,是天上來的使者,若傳福音給你們,與我們所傳給你們的不同,他就應當被咒詛。”保羅所宣布的好消息不是屬人的,也不是人教導他的,“乃是從耶穌基督啟示來的”。從前保羅一度熱心擁護猶太教,逼迫上帝的會眾,但後來上帝藉他的非配得仁慈呼召保羅,要保羅把他愛子的好消息向列國宣揚。歸信了三年之後,保羅才上耶路撒冷。在使徒之中,他只見過彼得和主的弟弟雅各。雖然猶太的各會眾聽聞過保羅的事,並且因他而“歸榮耀給上帝”,他們卻沒有和保羅見過面。 [13] 十四年之後,保羅再次上耶路撒冷,私下解釋他所傳講的好消息。保羅的同伴提多雖然是個希臘人,他們卻沒有要提多受割禮。雅各、磯法、約翰看見主委託保羅傳好消息給未受割禮的人(正如彼得受託傳好消息給受過割禮的人),他們就向保羅和巴拿巴伸出表示通力合作的右手,叫保羅和巴拿巴往列國的人那裏去,他們自己則往受過割禮的人那裏去。後來磯法來到安提阿,由於懼怕受過割禮的人,以致沒有正確行事,“與福音的真理不合”,保羅就當眾責備他。 (加拉太書2:14)
