Accordingly, when Mark had finished his Gospel, he delivered it to the persons who made this request. Here the descent of the Spirit on Jesus is meant, anointing him for his ministry; cf. In the 4th and 5th centuries, various Church Fathers wrote that the Gospel of Thomas was highly valued by Mani.

    Eventually, Jesus allows himself to succumb to the conspiracy against him. It does include a sighting of the empty tomb, but ends on a rather disconcerting note. Again, an apparently denigrating portrayal in the "Doubting Thomas" story may either be taken literally, or as a kind of mock "comeback" to Thomas' logia: not as an outright censuring of Thomas, but an improving gloss. An alternative non-supernatural explanation is that Mark's apocalyptic events and emphasis on suffering refer to the persecutions under Nero from In Mark, Jesus is portrayed as immensely popular with the people in Galilee during his ministry Mk ; ;
