Each Gospel writer presents a unique perspective with a selection of events and observations that support his theme. The book of Mark reads like a movie script. It moves rapidly through a series of visual images, emphasizing action.
In this book, we find a rich young ruler who questioned Christ about what he needed to do to inherit eternal life. Mark's Gospel includes a detail that Matthew and Luke failed to mention, "And Jesus looking upon him loved him..." This hints at the possibility that young John Mark himself may have been that rich young man.
Mark also presents Jesus Christ as the Suffering Servant. His close relationship with Peter resulted in his intimate portrait of Christ as Peter had presented it.
