Commentary on Mark
Mr 1:1 ¶ The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
In this book, Mark, begins right away on the works of Jesus. He commences
right away in the ministry of Jesus, for He did not come to be ministered unto
but to minister or to be a servant of His Father. (Mark 10:45)
I. The beginning of the gospel -
The word "gospel" means good news. It is a good news to this sin-plagued world. It is a good news for the people that have no hope of eternal life. It is a good news for people who have been battered by sin and miseries. The good news of the gospel began when Jesus revealed Himself to us.
To have a wonderful beginning, we must begin with Jesus Christ, for He is the author and finisher of our faith. As soon as the principles of the gospel begins in our life, we will experience many good news in our entire life. Let the gospel begins in your life.

In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. (Colossians 2:9)
Trinity is one of the mysteries in the Bible that God revealed Himself in three personalities, and One of His personalities, He is the Son of God.
