The purpose of this gospel is "to present the person, work, and teachings of Jesus." In this study, we will be reminded of the point of the Bible, the point of the history of Israel, and the point of Jesus Christ coming to earth. We will also be reminded that Jesus came not only to forgive our sins but to rinse clean this fallen world and restore all creation to the original design of our Lord. "In Jesus's death and resurrection, Mark is telling us, the world is being reborn. We will see again in the wonder of forgiveness, the hope of restoration, and the cross-shape of rejection," (Dane C. Ortlund, Crossway).
