Another answer from our community:

The Gospel of Mark is the shortest of the four gospels. It has 14 chapters. Matthew has 28. Luke has 22. and John has 21.

Mark's Gospel is the shortest New Testament gospel. As each of the later gospel authors copied form Mark, they tended more to add detail and elaborations, rather than leave out material they found in their source.
