Biblical Character
    ( -April 25, 68)
    Sometimes referred to as John Mark
    First Pope of Alexandria
    Wrote the 'Gospel of Mark' (circa 69 AD)
    He hung with a boring crowd of would-be saints.
    He is almost always shown carrying a book facing the viewer.
    In Western art, he is often depicted as a winged lion.
    His gospel appears second in the New Testament even though it was probably written first.
    After the death of Christ, he thought Egypt would be receptive of his Christian preachings. It turned out they liked their Egyptian gods more, and an angry mob killed him (68 AD).
    Some believe he actually died of old age, claiming others favored the angry mob story because it made him a martyr.
    The Venetians stole his supposed remains from Alexandria and then claimed an angel told them it was okay.
    He is the patron saint of lawyers and Venice (after he was smuggled there).
    His mom was a member of the first group of Christians.
    He was the first pope of Alexandria.
    Because of this, he is a very important figure in the Eastern Orthodox Church.
    He had to do a lot of servant work because the other apostles were lazy.
    He carried water to the house where the Last Supper was taking place.
    He let the other apostles (and the resurrected Christ) hang out at his house after Jesus died.
    He was one of the few to see Jesus' first miracle of turning water into wine.
