Who is Driving? Mark 1:1-15

We see the Trinity in action in this short slice of Scripture: The Gospel according to Mark Chapter 1, verses 1-15.

There is a short introduction to Mark as he tells "The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God", according to Peter's eyewitness account that Mark witnessed Peter preach over the time he travelled with him.

Founded on an understanding of prophetic scripture, Mark tells how Jesus is baptised and driven by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness for and battles for 40 days with Satan and wild animals; helped by ministering angels.

Jesus declaration of intent is summed up in the quote "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel." (Mar 1:15)
