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.
