Mark. "Concerning this testimony. Mark's gospel, 1. Is but short, much
shorter than Matthew's, not giving so full an account of Christ's sermons as
that did, but insisting chiefly on his miracles. 2. It is very much a repetition
of what we had in Matthew; many remarkable circumstances being added to the
stories there related, but not many new matters. When many witnesses are called
to prove the same fact, upon which a judgment is to be given, it is not thought
tedious, but highly necessary, that they should each of them relate it in their
own words, again and again, that by the agreement of the testimony the thing may
be established; and therefore we must not think this book of scripture needless,
for it is written not only to confirm our belief that Jesus is the Christ the
Son of God, but to put us in mind of things which we have read in the foregoing
gospel, that we may give the more earnest heed to them, lest at any time we let
them slip; and even pure minds have need to be thus stirred up by way of
remembrance. It was fit that such great things as these should be spoken and
written, once, yea twice, because man is so unapt to perceive them, and so apt
to forget them. There is no ground for the tradition, that this gospel was
written first in Latin, though it was written at Rome; it was written in Greek,
as was St. Paul's epistle to the Romans, the Greek being the more universal
language." - Matthew Henry (Read
