Mark the Evangelist (Hebrew: מרקוס, Marqōs; Greek: Μάρκος, Markos; Latin: Marcus; Coptic: Ⲙⲁⲣⲕⲟⲥ, Markos), the writer of the Gospel of Mark is mentioned in several places in the Bible. He is thought to be the son of a fairly well to do Jewish family who lived in Jerusalem and offered their house for the passover meal of Jesus and the Disciples which is referred to as The Last Supper. His gospel is thought by some to be the earliest of the four (written around 44 AD) as well as the shortest, and seems to reflect the time orientation of the Roman culture. He also worked with Paul the Apostle and Barnabas as one of the first missionaries.
