In the years after, following in the footsteps of his friend and mentor Peter, Mark becomes an ardent follower of Jesus and a devoted disciple of Christianity, spreading the Word beyond Jerusalem and into the world. Mark urges Peter to recount to him the stories of Jesus' life on Earth, His messages, His miracles, and His everlasting promises to His people, and compiles what becomes canonized as the Gospel of Mark.
Mark chronicles the growth of the early Christian church, the struggles of Jesus' followers, and the persecution they endured from a hostile world. Mark's Story is a thrilling account that vividly depicts the last day before Jesus' crucifixion and the danger that early believers faced as they boldly proclaimed Jesus as Christ the Lord. Their bravery laid the foundation for the early church, and their fervent passion for the Word reverberates throughout the world today.

This was a very interesting and exciting look at John Mark. I had to listen twice and I'm sure probably a third time. Highly recommend!
The authors add a bit of historical fiction, but mainly rearrange the letters and gospels from the new testament in a way that makes them come alive, and helped me understand them in a new way. Great book!
I have just finished Mark's Story of The Jesus Chronicles. I have never listened to a more thrilling and heart-rending story of the life of Jesus and His early followers. Many interesting facts come to light that I have always wondered about in the lives of Peter, Paul and John Mark.
Thank you Audible and authors Lahaye and Jenkins
