The Explanation by Blessed Theophylact, Archbishop of Ochrid and Bulgaria, of the Holy Gospel According to Saint Mark
Translated from the original Greek by Fr. Christopher Stade
Volume II of Blessed Theophylact’s Explanation of the New Testament
“The Gospel According to St. Mark was written ten years after the Ascension of Christ. This Mark was a disciple of Peter, whom Peter calls his son, that is, his spiritual son. He was also called John, and the nephew of Barnabas, and the companion of Paul. But eventually he accompanied Peter the most, and was with him in Rome. The believers in Rome begged Mark not only to preach orally, but also to give them a written account of Christ’s life. He agreed, and composed it immediately.”
