    Tradition argues that it was __________ who wrote the Gospel of Mark.

    • A.

      John Mark

    Correct Answer
    A. John Mark

    John Mark is suggested as the author of the Gospel of Mark based on tradition. This tradition is supported by early church fathers such as Papias and Irenaeus, who attributed the Gospel to John Mark, a companion of the apostle Peter. Additionally, there are internal clues within the Gospel itself that suggest John Mark's authorship, such as his detailed knowledge of Peter's teachings and his inclusion of personal anecdotes that align with Peter's experiences. While there is no definitive evidence, the tradition and internal evidence point to John Mark as the likely author of the Gospel of Mark.

    Peter was martyred in the _____'s

    • A.

      60's

    • B.

      60s

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. 60's
    B. 60s
    Explanation
    Peter was martyred in the 60's or 60s. The apostrophe in "60's" indicates that it is a contraction of the word "1960s," referring to the decade in which Peter was martyred. The lack of an apostrophe in "60s" suggests that it is an abbreviation of the same word, also referring to the same time period. Both forms are commonly used to indicate the decade of the 1960s.

    • A.

      Action

    • B.

      Action

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Action
    B. Action
    Explanation
    Mark's gospel is very action-driven. The word "action" refers to the fact that Mark's gospel focuses heavily on the actions and deeds of Jesus rather than his teachings or inner thoughts. This gospel emphasizes the active and dynamic nature of Jesus' ministry, highlighting his miracles, healings, and interactions with people. The use of the word "action" in both lowercase and uppercase suggests that it is a suitable description for Mark's gospel, regardless of the specific formatting.

    Less than 10% of Mark's gospel is original

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that less than 10% of Mark's gospel is original. This means that the majority of the gospel is not original and may have been borrowed or adapted from other sources. Therefore, the answer "True" indicates that the statement is correct and less than 10% of Mark's gospel is indeed original content.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Mark reads like a _____ play

    • A.

      Screen

    • B.

      Screen

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Screen
    B. Screen
    Explanation
    The word "screen" is used twice in the options, once with a lowercase "s" and once with an uppercase "S". Since the question does not provide any context or additional information, it is difficult to determine the intended meaning. However, both "screen" and "Screen" can be used to describe a type of play that is performed on a screen or projected onto a screen, such as a film or a multimedia production. Therefore, either option could be considered correct depending on the interpretation.

    Rate this question:

      Yes

      No

    • C.

      Huh?

    Correct Answer
    B. No

    The gospel of Mark does not prioritize Jewish law and principles. Throughout the gospel, Mark emphasizes the teachings and actions of Jesus, portraying him as a figure who challenges traditional Jewish customs and beliefs.

This suggests that Mark's gospel places less importance on Jewish law and principles and focuses more on the message and mission of Jesus.
