Gospel according to Mark
Walking with Jesus

This is not a traditional bible commentary on the Gospel of Mark. It is the result of my personal readings of the gospel (often while biking to my office), especially looking at the character of Jesus.

Man of compassion and authority

Two aspects of His character have impressed me. One is His compassion. It seems that in each personal encounter Jesus shows compassion for the people He meets, often ignoring the reactions of the by standers. At the same time, He always remains Himself in all circumstances. He is never off-guard, never confused. This shows his enourmous authority. He is very masculine, integrating compassion and authority.
