Mark is the second of the four Gospels in our Bible, but is thought to have been the first written. This book is a speedy race through the life of Jesus, starting with his baptism and focusing on his actions and deeds. Mark brings to life many of Jesus' miracles, healings and interactions with others. This book was written for non-Jews, so Mark takes care to explain Jewish customs. He also focuses on the incredible things Jesus did as proof of who he claimed to be. 

Mark is short, concise and easy to read if you want to know all about the actions and life of Jesus. It's also a great Gospel to read because it was written specifically for non-Jews (which probably includes you). This book highlights that Jesus doesn't just want us to go through life following a bunch of rules but that it all comes down to loving God and loving others (Mark 12:28:31).
