Marks narration does not involve theological training and knowledge of the Old Testament. His short stories, apt comments, and aphorisms may be the characteristic of a preacher, addressing to a diverse street crowd. One cannot state that the Gospel of Mark is the sample of a literary style, however, it conveys the image of Christ with remarkable accuracy and power.In turn, Acts is devoted to the creation of a Christian church and its development in the first thirty years of the existence of Christianity after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the Acts of the Apostles, the idea of Gods omnipotence is greatly emphasized: in spite of the diverse forms of stubborn resistance, the word of God is spreading on the earth, and people respond to it. Christianity is gaining power, and nothing can stop it. The first chapter deals with the appearance of Christ to his disciples after his death that leads many to verify the truth of the word of God (1:13, 1:14). Peter becomes one of the Apostles (1:17). On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit is visiting all the apostles, and each of them begins to speak in different languages (2: 4). From this day, the apostles begin their preaching, and the first preacher is Peter proclaiming Christ as the savior of the people (2:38). Apostles demonstrate the ability to healing (3: 9, 3:10). The apostles are faced with various problems, in particular, Peter and John are arrested, though they continue defending the truth of Christianity without fear of any guards or priests (4: 1, 4:20). As a result, they are released (4:21). The 19th chapter describes the preaching of Paul, who teaches and baptizes people from different countries (19: 6). After a while Pauls opponents from the Jews are trying to prevent him preaching (19:30). This gives Paul the opportunity to collect the most fervent supporters of his teaching, give them Christian instructions and go to Macedonia (20: 1). Performing various miracles Paul finds new followers there (20:12, 20:37).Finally, Ephesians can be regarded as a moral farewell of Paul, who is trying to justify the need for a righteous life and faith in Christs name. His message is addressed in particular to the Gentiles, whose life in his opinion is not worthy of God’s respect and recognition due to the fact that it does not correspond to Gods plan towards people.
