Mark’s Gospel is fast-paced and to the point. It is the shortest Gospel, and con-tains relatively fewer teaching passages – compare, for instance, Matthew and Luke both contain elements of the Sermon on the Mount, while such lengthy sermons aren’t recorded in Mark. Mark, on the other hand, is the Gospel of action, moving quickly from place to place in its record of Jesus’ ministry.
The Pastoral Letters were written by Paul to Timothy and Titus. It shows what the church is supposed to be and how we are live and grow together as an authentic Christian community of believers.
