The Book of Mark takes a look at the Pharisees.
The second of the four Gospels is that of Mark. Mark never saw Jesus in the flesh, but he was a close friend to Jesus' disciple Peter, who passed on the details of Jesus' life to Mark. Whereas Matthew's Gospel was written primarily for Jewish Christians, it seems that Mark's was intended for Roman readers. He uses Latin expressions and explains Jewish customs to those who would be unfamiliar with them.
Mark's Gospel presents Jesus as a suffering servant. He describes Jesus' actions more than His teachings, and focuses on His humanness; His emotions, limitations and mortality.
"The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; as it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judæa, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; and preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost"
