Church Fathers: Irenaeus (202 AD), Photius, and Theophylact. 


Irenaeus writes: “Wherefore also Mark, the interpreter and follower of Peter, does thus commence his Gospel narrative: “The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; as it is written in THE PROPHETS, Behold, I send My messenger before Thy face, which shall prepare Thy way”. . . Plainly does the commencement of the Gospel quote the words of THE HOLY PROPHETS and point out Him at once, whom they confessed as God and Lord;” (Against Heresies, 3:10:5)

1865 Matthew Henry: “Isaiah and Malachi each spake concerning the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, in the ministry of John. From these prophets we may observe, that Christ, in his gospel, comes among us, bringing with him a treasure of grace, and a scepter of government. Quotations are here borrowed from two prophecies–that of Isaiah, which was the longest, and that of Malachi, which was the latest (and there were above three hundred years between them), both of whom spoke to the same purport concerning the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, in the ministry of John.” 


John Gill comments on Mark 1:2 – “As it is written in the prophets,…. Malachi and Isaiah; for passages out of both follow; though the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, and Persic versions.
