Mark the Evangelist

When Saint Mark the Evangelist came to Egypt Mark founded the Church in Egypt and became bishop of Alexandria he is one of the writers of the Bible. he was a son of saint peter may he told that to show his love for Mark, or he may have used it because he was the one who baptized Mark,

he one of the four men who wrote the Gospels found in the New Testament, Mark’s Gospel was written first, and description of Jesus’ life, Death, Resurrection, and Ascension. Mark’s writings helped both Matthew and Luke to write their Gospels. he probably never knew Jesus, 

about Mark life 

Mark traveled with St. Paul and Barnabas to diffuse the Good News about Jesus. During his jail in Rome, Paul says Mark’s interest in him and writes about how helpful Mark is in the ministry of helping others to believe in Jesus.

According to the Coptic tradition, Mark was born in Cyrene, a city in the Pentapolis of North Africa (now Libya). This tradition adds that Mark returned to Pentapolis later in life, after being sent by Paul to Colossae.

Some, however, think these actually refer to Mark the Cousin of Barnabas and serving with him in Rome (2 Tim 4:11); from Pentapolis he made his way to Alexandria. When Mark returned to Alexandria, the pagans of the city resented his efforts to turn the Alexandrians away from the worship of their traditional gods. In AD 68, they placed a rope around his neck and dragged him through the streets until he was dead.
