St. Mark, the Author of this book, was the disciple and companion of St. Peter, whom he calls in his first Epistle, chap. v. 13. Marcus my son. It is generally believed that he is the same person that is mentioned in the Acts, and in St. Paul's Epistles, as John, whose surname is Mark, Acts xii. 2, and that he was the son of a pious woman called Mary, who dwelt at Jerusalem ; we also read, Col. iv. 10, that he was sister's son to Barnabas. He is mentioned as accompanying Paul and Barnabas in their travels, Acts xii. 25, and xiii. 5. He is the person on whose account Paul and Barnabas separated, Acts xv. 39; where it is said that Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus. It is evident that_afterwards Paul became fully reconciled to him. See Col. iv. 10. 2 Tim. iv. 11. & Phil. 24.

It is related that his ministry was very effectual in the conversion of numbers to the Christian faith, and that it exposed him to very painful sufferings, ending in his death. He died as a marts at Alexandria in Egypt, in the eighth year of Nero. Some writers assert that his remains were removed from Alexandria to Venice, where he is accounted the tutelary patron of the republic, and an elegant church is dedicated to his memory. See Encyclopædia Britannica, and Dr. Lardner's works, vol. 6. p. 77. &c.

Most learned men have agreed that this Gospel was written in Greek, though some have contended for a Latiu original, as a number of Latin words are found interspersed; but this may be accounted for, by supposing that it was written for the use of the Roman people. It has been conjectured that Mark only wrote as he was dictated to by St. Peter; others have thought that this book is an abridgment of St. Matthew both these opinions have but a slight foundation. The matter of St. Mark's Gospel was given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The language appears to be his owo-it is plain and unadorned. The Hebraisms which occur in it might be reasonably expected from a native of Palestine, writing in the Greek language. It is a valuable part of Divine Revelation.

The following circumstances are omitted by St. Mark, which are noticed either by St. Matthew or St. Luke at the commencement of their Gospels : -viz. Elizabeth's conception-the Salutation of Mary -Elizabeth visited by Mary-the birth of John Baptist--the appearance of the Angel to Joseph-Christ's genealogy-Christ's birth-the Angel appearing to the 'shepherd s-Christ's circumcision-Christ's presentation in the temple-the visit of the Magi-Joseph's flight into Rgypt-the infants murdered by Herod-the Holy Family's retura into Egypt--the journey of Christ when twelve years old to Jerusalem.
