While on the ultimate road trip through the Bible, we’ve been on the move, zooming here and there. Mark accelerates the pace when he introduces Jesus Christ through his Gospel, quickly moving the reader from one scene in Jesus’s life and ministry to the next. 


By using the word “immediately” (euthus) more than forty times in sixteen chapters, Mark gives the sense that Jesus was always on the move, though never hurried—serving, healing, preaching, and making disciples, while always focused on His goal of fulfilling the Father’s redemptive purposes through His atoning sacrifice on the cross. 


Are you keeping pace with Jesus, who came to serve, and the Father who sent Him?
