Saint Mark the Evangelist (מרקוס, Greek: Μάρκος) (1st century), also known as John Mark', is traditionally believed to be the author of the Gospel of Mark and a companion of Saint Peter. He accompanied St. Paul and Barnabas on Paul's first missionary journey. After a sharp dispute, Barnabas separated Paul, taking Mark to Cyprus (Acts 15:36-40). Later Paul called upon the services of Mark, the kinsman of Barnabas, and Mark was named as Paul's fellow worker.

His feast day is celebrated on 25 April, the anniversary of his martyrdom. St Mark is also believed by various traditions to be the first bishop of Alexandria and the first Pope of Alexandria. He is considered the founder of the church in Alexandria, according to the Coptic church understanding, and thus the founder of Christianity in Africa. His evangelistic symbol is the lion
