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.

馬太福音 Matthew 上 (粵語)

馬太福音 Matthew 上 (粵語) 《馬太福音》主題:國度的福音─證明耶穌基督是救主。 內容大綱 儘管四福音書均記載了耶穌在世的事跡,馬太福音卻用了一個以耶穌為舊約聖經中上帝所應許的彌賽亞的角度去看祂的生平與教導。為此緣故,本書常將舊約預言與耶穌的生平連貫起來,從而扮演了舊約與新約之間的橋樑。再者,因為耶穌是彌賽亞,本書十分強調祂有權柄去解釋上帝的律法,及教導有關天國的真理。內容大致可分為以下段落: 耶穌是基督 主條目:馬太福音第1章、耶穌的家譜和耶穌降生馬太福音以耶穌的父系家譜開始,證明耶穌是大衛的子孫,就是《舊約聖經》所預言的基督。耶穌的童年由約瑟的妻子,馬利亞從聖靈被感孕開始,在伯利恆出生。後來為逃離大希律王的殺害逃往埃及,皆應驗了舊約聖經的預言。
