Abstract The Gospel of Mark is poorly represented among early NT witnesses, so the testimony of Codex Sinaiticus to the text of Mark is particularly important as one of the two earliest complete witnesses. The author considers the presentation of Mark in Sinaiticus, not only the text but also items such as paragraphing, scribal corrections, quire construction, abbreviations, nomina sacra, and Ammonian sections and Eusebian canons. Of particular interest is the question of whether any of the features of the text and its presentation affect the scholar's understanding of the way in which the gospel was understood in the early centuries of Christianity.
