I was recently challenged to see how Mark's gospel account draws from Isaiah. This is especially true in how Mark portrays Jesus as the YHWH's servant, just like Isaiah does. Also notable is that Mark's gospel opens not with a genealogy, but by quoting Isaiah 40, which is the beginning of new covenant comfort in Isaiah 40-66. Here is a list of Markan texts that I believe have some of their thematic background in Isaiah.
