The references to Jesus’ death that appear before the beginning of the actual description thereof prove the significance of this death for Mark the Evangelist. Theophylact of Ohrid, the first Greek commentator of the entire Gospel of Mark, also paid attention to the significance of these references. He turns out to be original when compared with the patristic interpretations of the Gospel texts.
