The author John Mark was the son of Mary in Jerusalem (Acts 12:12), and a cousin of Barnabas in Acts (Col 4:10). It is also generally believed that he was the "young man" mentioned in Mark 14:51-52. Compared to the other gospels (Matthew, Luke, John) Mark more emphasizes the miracles that Jesus did. His gospel seems to be aimed more at those living outside of Palestine, since there are only a few references to Old Testament scriptures.
