Mark's Gospel can be considered a mixture of literary genres, including biography, drama and martyrology. It was actually both the first of a new genre, the Christian gospel, and the major source of material for the other gospels.

A:Paul made the first mention of the gospel in his epistles, using this in the general sense of what he taught. 1 Thessalonians 2:2 is possibly his earliest mention: "at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention." .The earliest book of the gospel genre was Mark's Gospel, but Matthew's Gospel is listed first.
