A Story about Saint Mark

Mark was a Levite, ranked as a member of the second most holy group in Israel, but he wasn’t treated with any respect. He met Jesus and then rejected him, because he still wanted to think of the world in terms of purity and impurity, and Jesus wanted him to think of the world in terms of compassion. Eventually he returned to the ideas of Jesus after the crucifixion, became Peter’s secretary, and wrote down the stories that Peter told, forming the Gospel of Mark.

  2. Thank you Karl for helping me to understand better about ‘purity’.My journey that God has me on at present, I have been trying to deal with the feeling of purity and what does it realy mean. Thank you for opening up my heart some more.
