About the Authors
  • This volume provides a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the Gospel of Mark, now widely considered the first recorded treatment of Jesus. Darrell Bock explains how this text, once the least-used gospel, came to be regarded as the starting point for understanding Jesus. Drawing together previous arguments and discussion in a constructive summary, he traces the significance of Mark and addresses key features such as its cultural and historical background, its narrative flow, and the role of Greek in supplying meaning. This commentary highlights the issues Mark's gospel raises and develops Mark's message surrounding Jesus' claims of kingdom authority and salvation, the call to disciples to follow him, and the preparation of those disciples to face suffering in light of their choice. Mark will be a valuable resource for students, teachers, and pastors alike.

    • Written in an accessible style that makes it useful for pastors and Bible studies leaders as well as for personal study and enrichment
    • Clearly organizes and summarizes the existing scholarly resources on Mark's gospel, allowing readers to progress to the next level of study more easily
    • Includes specific notes on ancient sources to guide readers to additional information on the historical background of Mark
