His studies have led him to write the Ancient Words Bible Study Series. "Perhaps others can receive the help I have received from studying God's Word. We can never know enough and learn everything that is contained in God's inspired Word. I hope anyone who wants to know their God and Saviour will dig deep into Scripture and understand the depth of love our God had, that whilst we were still sinners, Christ came to earth and died for us (Romans 5:8).
Mark’s book is more than simply a collection of anecdotes; it is a narrative created to demonstrate that Jesus is the Messiah, not only for Jews but also Gentiles. The disciples, headed by Peter, professed their confidence in Him (Mark 8:29-30), even though they did not wholly comprehend His Messiahship until after His resurrection.
We see what a fast pace He established as we follow His trips through Galilee, the neighbouring territories, and finally to Judea. He affected many people’s lives, but He left a lasting impression on His followers. At the transfiguration (Mark 9:1-9), He showed three of them a glimpse of His impending return in power and majesty, and He exposed Himself to them once more.
However, in the days before His last journey to Jerusalem, we find them bewildered, afraid, and doubtful. After everyone departed, Jesus stood alone throughout His arrest. During the sham trials that followed, Jesus firmly declared that He is the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One, and that He will triumphantly return (Mark 14:61-62). His followers did not see the climax events surrounding His crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection. However, some pious ladies saw His crucifixion. They took burial spices and went to the tomb after the Sabbath, early in the morning of the first week-day. They entered the tomb after seeing the stone had been rolled aside. They did not see Jesus’ body but rather an angel dressed in white. The angel announced that Christ had risen from the dead. Women were the earliest evangelists, spreading the message of Jesus’ resurrection. This message spread across the globe in the centuries that followed.
This book may be used in a variety of circumstances in life. It offers us Christians hope that we will be with Him, whether living or dead, when Christ returns (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). It ensures us as Christians that we will not face God's wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:8-9). It teaches us how to live the Christian life daily (1 Thessalonians 4–5).
