The readers of Mark’s gospel start off knowing who Jesus is – Mark begins the gospel with “The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” The disciples follow Jesus, and gradually come to realise this, although even by the very end of the gospel, they haven’t completely got it. As readers of Mark’s gospel, we know who Jesus is from the start. But we gradually come to realise that we need to follow Jesus – just like the disciples were.
