St. Marks belongs to one of the most ancient Christian denominations in the Holy Land: the Syriac Orthodox.

A tradition developed in antiquity that the Last Supper and the first speaking in tongues, also marked on nearby Mount Zion, took place at John Marks house.

A sixth-century inscription in the sanctuary reads: this is the house of Mary mother of John Mark.

The inscription is in Syriac, a language akin to the Aramaic that Jesus spoke, and that is still spoken by the community.
