The book of Mark was written by John Mark. He was an interpreter for Peter and most likely wrote this Gospel under his guidance. John Mark was the cousin of Barnabas. He went along the first missionary journey with Paul and Barnabas. Throughout this Gospel we see the flaws of Peter, as well as the other disciples.
Mark wrote this Gospel from Rome and wrote this account for the wider Church as a record of the testimonies of Peter. Most believe this was written to display the life and sayings of Jesus so the church would have an instructional tool for their practice. It is also possible it was written as an encouragement for Roman Christians experiencing persecution under Caesar Nero. The Gospel of Mark gives us a picture of discipleship, as well as a call to participate in discipleship ourselves.
Most scholars agree that Mark was written in the mid to late 50s A.D, although some believe it was possible for it to have been written in the mid 60s A.D. The majority of scholars believe this was the first of the Gospels written.
