The Gospel of Mark, which will be our focus for the next couple of months, is an account of the Divine Servant Who emptied Himself of the 'form of God' in order to serve.
Philippians 2:6-8 captures His heart so well "Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."

Of Mark, which covered a period of 7 years, Philip Yancey describes the author as "...deftly controlling camera angles, alternately panning across large crowds and zooming in on individual people... leaving no doubt as to the main character: Jesus rightly placed on center stage and the camera follows him everywhere."
