Do words or actions establish a person’s credibility more? Most of us would say that a person’s actions speak louder than their words. Thus, the saying goes, “if you’re going to talk the talk, you must walk the walk”. Practicing what you preach also works. 


The Gospel According to Mark focuses primarily on Jesus’s works, not His major discourses, to validate His Messianic claim, which is why Mark’s gospel is shorter than Matthew’s. For Mark and his Gentile audience, actions speak louder than words.


In Mark’s Gospel, Jesus is the Spirit-filled servant, serving servant, suffering servant, and the special servant of God. There is no doubt that Jesus came to serve, and His service ultimately validates His Messianic claim.
