St. Mark Comments

The second Gospel was written by St. Mark, who, in the New Testament, is sometimes called John Mark.

    I don't profess to be a historian on theology but something is very wrong with this article. If you read the Wilkopedia about St Mark there is a big difference of opinion than what the author has written in this article. John Mark did not write the Gospels, Mark the Evangelist did, John Mark's mother was Mary and her house was indeed a Christian center. John mark did not become bishop of Alexandria, Mark the Evangelist did. So i guess I'm going to do a little more in depth research to find out who in fact is correct.
