Mark the Evangelist (מרקוס, Greek: Μάρκος) was one of the followers of Jesus Christ. He is believed to be the writer of the Gospel of Mark. He is believed by some scholars to be the young man found in chapter 14, verses 51-52 of the gospel. The Copts think Mark brought Christianity to Egypt. His Roman name was Marcus. It was his house where Jesus and his disciples ate the last supper.
