Each of the four Gospels is distinctive. Each has its own angle concerning the Lord Jesus Christ and his life. The four perspectives in no way contradict each other, but they do complement each other like the strings and percussion and wind instruments in a band. Mark often tells us that Jesus taught, but spends less time on what he taught. The Servant King deals with Jesus’ actions, covering the whole of Mark. This insightful guide serves as an easy-to-read introduction to a fast-paced Gospel.
