Mark divided his Gosel into two parts.

Sunday, 9/16/18

Mark was the only one who wrote a Gospel  from
his personal knowledge of Jesus. As such, he often
heard the complaint that since Jesus was executed as a
criminal, there was no way he could be the Savior/

In answer to that complaint, Mark divided his Gospel
into two equal parts, with the first half giving many
many accounts of Jesus performing miracles that
 proved he was the Savior.

In the second part of his Gospel Mark showed us how
Jesus saved us by his out and out acceptance of
suffering.

Our first reading today from Isaiah was a prediction
of how the Messiah would save us by not protecting his
back from beating and by patiently accepting every
kind od insult
