      Mark's highly repetitive of the adverb, euthus, appears to be based upon the
      adjective, eutheias (Mark 1:3), where John is "made straight" or "made
      direct" the Lords's paths, quoting Isaiah 40:3. Thus, when things happen
      immediately," the allusion is to the Lord traveling upon the "straight paths
      that John has prepared. In this way, a charged, theological meaning stands
      behind Mark's copious use (42 occurrences) of the adverb.
