Books of the Bible

The Book of Mark is one of the four canonical Gospels. It was most likely the earliest of the four to be written. Scholars typically estimate it was written between 70CE and 90CE, by an unknown author.

Doctrinal conflicts

In Mark 9:1 Bible-icon.png, Jesus says to his followers:

"Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power."

This implies that the endtimes were to happen within the lifetime of the apostles which is a view in conflict with orthodox Christian doctrine.

Mark 10:17-18 Bible-icon.png:

17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

Here Jesus is portrayed making it clear that he is not God, and that he is not even good. This conflicts with belief in the doctrines of the Trinity and the divinity of Jesus.
