Roman Setting and Dating Insights of the Gospel of Mark

The Gospel of Mark, likely penned between 55 and 70 AD, offers insight into the turbulent era of Rome, specifically pre-70 AD, deduced from the lack of mention of Jerusalem’s destruction. The text suggests Mark, along with apostles Paul and Peter, worked from Rome, also known as Babylon, a strategic hub for spreading the Gospel. Despite the brutal persecution of Christians under Emperor Nero, Mark’s commitment to documenting Jesus’ life illustrates the resilience of Christian faith.
