Good News According To Mark

Mark was a Jewish Christian trained by Peter, who wrote the Gospel According To Mark and started the Egyptian church.

According to tradition the Coptic Orthodox Church is the Church of Alexandria which was established by Saint Mark the apostle and evangelist in the middle of the 1st century (approximately AD 42).

The Egyptian Church, which is now more than nineteen centuries old, regards itself as the subject of many prophecies in the Old Testament. Isaiah the prophet, in Chapter 19, Verse 19 says “In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border.”

The first Christians in Egypt were mainly Alexandrian Jews such as Theophilus,[citation needed] whom Saint Luke the Evangelist addresses in the introductory chapter of his gospel.
