According to Mark's account, the Son of God has appeared on earth. Pretty big deal, right? But for Mark, much more is in store for a future when everything will be transformed from the bottom up. Here's Mark's big plan: Jesus will return leading a crew of angels, gather his followers together, and institute a brand of justice and transparency that the world's never seen. Included in this vision are a transfer of power and a judgment on the people responsible for Jesus's death.
Welcome to the land of Mark's apocalyptic world-view. Just like West Virginia, it's wild and wonderful.
