The Gospel of Mark can be read in light of Second Temple Jewish literature. In these writings by the apostle Mark one can see the contour and texture of Jesus’ engagement with his Jewish environment.

We have now read a chapter of action where we could find Jesus a.o. on a hillside east of the sea of Galilee, him being recognised him as “The Son of the Most High God”, something a lot of Christians still do not want to accept or comprehend, them still keeping him to worship as their god, instead of recognising the Works God did by this son of man. Lots of those Christians are reaching in the unknown instead of reaching to Christ with the same faith as the examples in this chapter showed.

In this chapter we also come to know that there were also leaders of the synagogue who believed in the powers of Jesus and in the restoring of his daughter.

Furthermore, Mark touches on “Exorcism and Power over Evil Spirits” (Mark 5:1-20) and “The Rules on Purity” (Mark 5:21-6:6a).

Review Questions on Chapter Five

  • Who did Jesus heal across the sea?
  • Where did Jesus send the demons?
  • How did the local people treat Jesus?
  • How is a suffering woman healed?
  • Describe the raising of the Jewish leader’s little daughter.
