Mark’s gospel is concerned with the question and the identity of Jesus as the messianic Son of God. This picture is modeled on the suffering servant Messiah who is vividly described in Isaiah 53, the one who would come to deliver his own people but whom they would reject and scorn. Mark’s gospel begins with the statement that Jesus is the “Christ, the Son of God” (Mark 1:1). At his baptism, Jesus is confirmed to be the messianic Son of God by a voice from heaven, “This is my Son… listen to him!” (9:7). At the end of the book, the Roman centurion states “Surely this man was the Son of God” (15:39). The importance of Jesus’ final week is evidenced by the fact that Mark 11-16 is devoted soley to Christ’s final seven days in Jerusalem.
