And the book of Mark, written by John Mark, is actually what can be termed as the gospel of Peter since most theologians agree that the Gospel of Mark is actually the work of Peter. Remember that John Mark was not an apostle and was never a witness to the living Christ while on earth or the resurrected Christ and that by definition is what makes one an apostle. The most important element when reading the Bible is to not be in a hurry.
Stop and meditate on the words. If you are wanting to read the Bible, believer or not, this may be strong evidence that God the Father is calling you John The point is that biblical knowledge is not gained by rote memorization or from academic head knowledge but by God the Holy Spirit.
He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

Hello Mr. Jack, I have a question. I have recently gave my life back over to Christ.
2. Look for Jesus in all of the Bible.
I will be using the list of books to start with in my journey in becoming closer to Christ. Thank you for this article. I also understand that the devil tempts the ones that are trying to walk the path God laid out for them but at the same time where two or more are joined in his name He will be there. And if your answer is yes then what can I do if anything?
Thank you in advance for your reply. May God bless you in abundance. Am so very sorry for your heartache here Krisha. If you are unequally yoked, there is still nothing you can do about it. Only adultery is the reason you can divorce him. Just because you go to different churches has nothing to do with being unequally yoked. That is about a Christian and a non-believer being married. I would read 1st John chapter 3 to see why I say that. Whether you are unequally yoked or not, if there is no biblical reasons for a divorce, such as ongoing, unrepentant adultery, you must stay together.
I will pray with you my friend for that is all but that is the most you and I can do. I wish I could have been more help. Thank you for your response. There is no adultery by no means, thank God. Thank you for your prayers for us. Hi Krisha, I would not say you are unequally yoked with the information you have given here. It seems to me that he has not grown in faith like you have and does not thirst to be closer.
You are doing the right thing. Continue to pray for him and live for the Lord. Pastor Dr. My husband and I married before we were saved. I have been in the same situation you have been in once I was saved.
I have been praying for my husband 30 plus years to know Jesus has deeply as I do. Yes divorce was an option several time and I knew who wanted that…the Satan… I am greatful and praise God my husband has been a going to church with me for the last 5 months and he is very involved. I will be praying for you and your husband. Jack, First of all if you get this twice please forgive me my laptop died. I have a question. I need your help please. My husband and I are married just for for 3 months now.
But he is filing the annulment because of the crime that i never did. I am filipina married to American citizen. We got married here in the Philippines. He always accused me being a whore and screwing somebody here.

Please pray for me and my husband who is closed minded and hard hearted. He said he is a Christian but why he is so judgmental and no mercy. God knows i am devoted and faithful to my husband. I value him and my marriage more than my life. Please help me what to do. I am so crushed and devastated. I am so lost. I keep on praying to God for our marriage to be saved.
I believe that God is powerful and He is the One that brought us be married and one. So help me God. Thank you so much for reading my story.
About This Article
God bless you and your family. I am so sorry Mary. Yes, I will pray for you. Jesus said that you will know them by their fruits and by our love for one another John 17? I will pray and I am sorry for such heartache for you. I agree with your choice of John for the first Gopel to read. John was an eyewitness to Jesus and his Gospel is one that paints a picture of the world against the Spirit, light vs darkness.
These are things I think the new believer can quickly relate to.
