All four gospels were written to help maintain the purity of the gospel. Each of them complement one another even though they are written from a different viewpoint. Mark is a no-nonsense action-oriented guy so it's no wonder his gospel is like being shot out of a cannon. His gospel is the shortest and contains more conversation about His miracles as opposed to the parables. As we journey through Mark's gospel our hope is that we will love and appreciate the gospel at an even deeper level.
