St. Mark.

whose name this Gospel bears, was the familiar comthe Apostle Peter, and called by him his son, that is, whom he converted to Christianity. He was probably person who is called John, surnamed Mark; to whose house Peter retired when released by an angel out of CTS, xii. 12.) and who accompanied the apostles Paul

and Barnabas in their travels. Whether Mark or Luke wrote first has been disputed: but the general opinion now is, that Luke's Gospel was prior to that of Mark. Some think that Mark rather adopted the language of Matthew, and the order of Luke, in their joint sections; but that he followed neither implicitly. He is usually more circumstantial than they are in the relation of joint events. The learned Griesbach has demonstrated by an elaborate process, that Mark copied from both Matthew and Luke; that his Gospel is a compilation from both; and that the whole of it is contained in their Gospels, with the exception of about twenty-four verses, which retain facts not recorded by either of his predecessors, but illustrative of the general subject. Mark alone mentions that Christ was with the wild beasts in the wilderness during his temptation (i. 13.); that additional circumstance in our Lord's first preaching, "the time is fulfilled," foretold by the prophets (i. 15.); David's eating the shewbread in the days of Abiathar (ii. 16.); Boanerges, the emphatic surname of the Apostles James and John, signifying "sons of thunder" (iii. 17.); our Lord's anger and grief at the obduracy of the Jews (iii. 5.); the expression of his unbelieving friends, he is beside himself (iii. 21.); the beautiful parable of the spontaneous growth of the seed (iv. 26-29.); the number of the herd of swine 2000 (v. 13.); Christ's expression, Tabitha cumi, "Damsel arise," (v.41.); Ephphratha, "Be opened" (viii. 34.); the 5000 fed on the green grass, characterizing the spring of the year (vi. 39.); the distribution of the two fishes, as well as the loaves of bread (vi. 41.); the first cock crowing during Peter's denial of Christ (xiv. 68.); the addition of Salome to Matthew's party of women (xv. 40.); Christ's resurrection about sun-rise (xvi. 2.); the vision of the second angel at the holy sepulchre (xvi. 5.); the silence of the women respecting his message to Peter (xvi. 7, 8.); his appearance under another form to the disciples going to Emmaus (xvi. 12.); the disbelief of their report by the rest, and our Lord's censure (xvi. 13, 14.) ; his commission to the apostles to preach and work miracles (xvi. 15-18.); and their discharge of the commission (xvi. 20.) All these important facts and circumstances have been judiciously added to the concise accounts of Matthew and Luke. Had Luke followed him, it is not credible that he would have omitted them all, as John has noticed those of Mark which coincided with his scheme, or came within the range of his Gospel.

Hence we can satisfactorily account for Mark's omission of certain portions of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke entirely. On the same principle, John, coming after him, omits considerably more than Mark, so as to form a distinct Gospel, which may be considered a supplement to the rest; he only inserts so much common matter as was necessary to connect his Gospel
