In his gospel, Mark frequently uses words like immediately, and straightway, etc., which emphasizes the simple narrative and the direct approach to demonstrating that Jesus is the savior.  Even more so, the way that Mark uses the title “Son of God” in contrast to the mystery of Christ’s identity is significant to understand his goal of demonstrating the deity and Lordship of Christ.  Over the next few weeks, leading up to Easter, we will look at a few passages in Mark’s gospel that will help us see and know and worship Christ.
