Product Description

This superb commentary offers the first sustained attempt to read the Gospel of Mark both as an ancient biography and as a form of ancient rhetoric. Leading New Testament scholar Ben Witherington applies to Mark the socio-rhetorical approach for which he is well known, opening a fresh new perspective on the earliest Gospel. Witherington's work provides us with a fascinating view of how the life and teachings of Jesus were presented to a largely non-Jewish auidence - and what this presentation of Jesus still holds for Christians today.

    Buddy Boone
    Witherington has written several of the socio-rhetorical commentaries for Eerdmans. This one on Mark's gospel is just tremendous. Dr. Witherington sets the paradigm for interpreting Mark by identifying it as an ancient biography in which the writer utilizes ancient rhetoric. Witherington sees Mark writing to a largely non-Jewish audience and this obviously impacts the interpretation of a number of passages. Since Dr. Witherington sees the book as biographical, he places great emphasis on the Christology of Mark's gospel. This commentary is lucid, yet profound. I highly recommend it to pastors, teachers and laypeople alike.
