    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:1

    ¶ Comienza el Evangelio de Jess, el Cristo, hijo de Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Mark 1:1

    Verse 1. The beginning of the
    Gospel] It is with the utmost propriety that Mark begins the Gospel dispensation by the preaching of John the Baptist, he being the forerunner of Jesus Christ, and the first proclaimer of the incarnated Messiah. Gospel-for the meaning of the word see the preface to Matthew. Son of God] To point out his Divine origin; and thus glancing at his miraculous conception. This was an essential character of the Messiah. See Matthew xvi. 16; xxvi. 63; Luke xxii. 67, &c.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. The beginning of the
    Gospel of Jesus Christ , etc..] Not that the Gospel first began to be preached at this time, for it was preached by Isaiah, and other prophets before; and long before that, was preached unto Abraham; yea, it was preached as early as the times of our first parents, in Eden's garden; and is indeed that mystery, which was hid in God before the creation of the world; and was ordained before that was, to the glory of the saints: but the sense is, that this narrative Mark was about to write, began with the ministry of John the Baptist, and of Christ; which was a Gospel one, and was the beginning of the Gospel dispensation, in distinction from the legal one: the law and the prophets were until John, and they ceased and ended in him; when the abh lw [ , the world to come, the kingdom of God, or Gospel state, took place. The design of this evangelist, is not to give an account of the genealogy of Christ, of his conception and birth, of what befell him in his infancy, or of any actions and sayings of his from thence, to his appearance in Israel; but to give an account of his ministry and miracles, sufferings and death: which is introduced with the preaching and baptism of John his forerunner, and which he chiefly intends by the beginning of the Gospel: he first points out Christ, who is the author and substance, as well as the great preacher of the Gospel; the sum of which is, that he is Jesus, the Saviour and Redeemer of lost sinners; the Christ, the Messiah, that was to come; the Mediator between God and man, the prophet that has declared the whole mind and will of God; the great high priest, who has offered himself a sacrifice for his people, made peace, procured pardon, brought in everlasting righteousness, and obtained eternal redemption, and now lives to make intercession for them; and King of saints, who reigns over them, protects and defends them, and is no other than the Son of God ; equal with his Father; of the same nature with him, possessed of the same perfections, and enjoying the same glory; and which is a grand article of the Gospel, and without which he could not be an able Saviour, nor the true Messiah. Mark begins his account of the Gospel, and which he calls the beginning of it, with the same article of the divine sonship of Christ, as the Apostle Paul began his ministry with, ( Acts 9:20). Matthew began his Gospel with the humanity, Mark with the divinity of Christ: the one calls him the son of David, the other the Son of God, both true: Christ is the son of David according to his human nature, the Son of God according to his divine nature; so a testimony is bore to the truth of both his natures, which are united in one person.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - Isaiah and Malachi each spake concerning the beginning of the
    gospel of Jesus Christ, in the ministry of John. From these prophets we ma observe, that Christ, in his gospel, comes among us, bringing with his a treasure of grace, and a sceptre of government. Such is the corruption of the world, that there is great opposition to his progress. When God sent his Son into the world, he took care, and when he sends him into the heart, he takes care, to prepare his way befor him. John thinks himself unworthy of the meanest office about Christ The most eminent saints have always been the most humble. They fee their need of Christ's atoning blood and sanctifying Spirit, more tha others. The great promise Christ makes in his gospel to those who have repented, and have had their sins forgiven them, is, they shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost; shall be purified by his graces, an refreshed by his comforts. We use the ordinances, word, and sacrament without profit and comfort, for the most part, because we have not of that Divine light within us; and we have it not because we ask it not for we have his word that cannot fail, that our heavenly Father wil give this light, his Holy Spirit, to those that ask it.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Beginning (arch), without the article, showing that the expression is a
    kind of title. It is the beginning, not of his book, but of the facts of the Gospel. He shows from the prophets that the Gospel was to begin by the sending forth of a forerunner.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:1 {The beginning} (arce). There is no article in the
    Greek. It is possible that the phrase served as a heading or title for the paragraph about the ministry of the Baptist or as the superscription for the whole Gospel (Bruce) placed either by Mark or a scribe. And qen the Gospel of Jesus Christ means the Message about Jesus Christ (objective genitive). The word Gospel here (euaggelion) comes close to meaning the record itself as told by Mark. Swete notes that each writer has a different starting point (arce). Mark, as the earliest form of the evangelic tradition, begins with the work of the Baptist, Matthew with the ancestry and birth of the Messiah, Luke with the birth of the Baptist, John with the Preincarnate logos, Paul with the foundation of each of the churches (#Php 4:15). {The Son of God} (huiou qeou). Aleph 28, 255 omit these words, but B, D, L, have them and the great mass of the manuscripts have huiou tou qeou. If this is a heading added to what Mark wrote, the heading may have existed early in two forms, one with, one without "Son of God." If Mark wrote the words, there is no reason to doubt the genuineness since he uses the phrase elsewhere.
