Notes & Transcripts


Those who give credence to Papias’ testimony understand that Mark wrote shortly after Peter’s martyrdom at Rome (AD 64), thus placing the Gospel’s composition between AD 65 and 70. The year AD 70 is normally taken as the latest possible date for Mark because of the Gospel’s failure to mention the significant events of that year—the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the temple, which a native Palestinian scarcely could have neglected.
