Thayer's Expanded Definition

Μᾶρκος, Μάρκου, , Mark; according to the tradition of the church the author of the second canonical Gospel and identical with the John Mark mentioned in the Acts (see Ἰωάννης, 5). He was the son of a certain Mary who dwelt at Jerusalem, was perhaps converted to Christianity by Peter (Acts 12:11f), and for this reason called (1 Peter 5:13) Peter's son. He was the cousin of Barnabas and the companion of Paul in some of his apostolic travels; and lastly was the associate of Peter also: Acts 12:12, 25; Acts 15:37, 39; Colossians 4:10; 2 Timothy 4:11; Philemon 1:24 (23); 1 Peter 5:13, cf. Eusebius, h. e. 2, 15f; 3, 39. Some, as Grotius, (Tillemont, Hist. Eccl. 2:89f, 503f; Patritius, De Evangeliis 50:1, c. 2, quaest. 1 (cf. Cotelerius, Patr. Apost. i., 262f)), Kienlen (in the Studien und Kritiken for 1843, p. 423), contend that there were two Marks, one the disciple and companion of Paul mentioned in the Acts and Pauline Epistles, the other the associate of Peter and mentioned in 1 Peter 5:13; (cf. James Morison, Commentary on Mark, Introduction, § 4; Lightfoot on Colossians 4:10).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The spelling Μάαρκος which is found in such inscrr. as Syll 318 (= .8 700).2 (Macedonia—B.C. 118) Μάαρκος Ἄννιος Ποπλίου υἱός, CIG III. 6155 (Italy) Μάαρκος Κοσσούτιος, Μαάρκου ἀπελεύθερος, is sufficient to justify the accentuation Μᾶρκος, which Blass (Gr. § 4.2) adopts from the long α in the Lat. Mārcus. For other exx. of the name, showing how widely it was spread, see Swete Mark p. ix f., and add OGIS 170.1 (B.C. 146–116) and ib 637.2 (A.D. 196). The Roman praenomen is used alone like a Greek name in Priene 313.695 ὁ τ. Μάρκου τοῦ —, Preisigke 4595.3 τὸ προσκύνημα Ἀντωνίου. . . καὶ Μάρκου καὶ. . ., and ib. 4949.8 (sepulchral inscr.—A.D. 753) ἀνάπαυσ [ον τὴν ψ (υχὴν)] Μάρκ (ου) ἐν κόλπ [οις Ἀβραὰ ]μ. . .
