The Gospel According to Mark

Mark is widely regarded as the earliest gospel upon which the other synoptics depended. It is a fast-paced pies of literature known for it's vividness. Some of its literary features are as follows:

The Markan Sandwich
One of the clearest examples of this is found in Mark 5:21-46. Jairus, one of the synagogue leaders comes to Jesus and asks him to come and  lay hands on his daughter for she was near the point of death. And Jesus Goes with him.  Inserted here, between the beginning and finishing of the story of Jairus is the account of hemorrhaging woman.

Silence
One of strange themes in the Gospel of Mark is Christ's commands to silence. Sometimes when he would heal someone he would command them to be silent. He commanded the demons to be silent when they proclaimed him to be the Son of God. Jesus even commands Peter to silence after his good confession.

Explanatory Breaks
Another interesting part of Mark's structure are a couple of breaks that he puts in there. R.T France describes them as explanatory discourses. These are those points where amidst all the action, all the going ons, all the healings and teachings and confrontations, and ministerings, there is a pause. There is a pause in chapter 4 and in chapter 13.
