Product Description

The Gospel of Mark [NICNT] argues that not only was this gospel the unveiling of a literary style previously unknown to classical culture, but that is also has a specific theological agenda to proclaim Jesus Christ. According to William Lane, the entire book is structured around the intention set down in 1.1 while also encouraging Christians who lived under the persecution of Nero. Lane provides a critical introduction noting the reception of Mark in church history and its preeminent status among modern scholars.

Publisher's Description

This widely praised commentary by William Lane shows Mark to be a theologian whose primary aim was to strengthen the people of God in a time of fiery persecution by Nero. Using redaction criticism as a hermeneutical approach for understanding the text and the intention of the evangelist, Lane considers the Gospel of Mark as a total literary work and describes Mark's creative role in shaping the Gospel tradition and in exercising a conscious theological purpose.

Both indicating how the text was heard by Mark's contemporaries and studying Mark within the frame of reference of modern Gospel research, Lane's thoroughgoing work is at once useful to scholars and intelligible to nonspecialists.

Editorial Reviews

-- Reformed Theological Review
"The exposition is full and perceptive and never loses sight of the objective of bringing the whole thrust of Mark's Gospel to the attention of the reader."

-- Restoration Quarterly
"From the opening sentence this commentary is clear, creative, well-written, and extremely well informed. . . . All in all, a great commentary."

-- Choice
"A fine example of the best conservative Biblical scholarship."

-- Themelios
"The commentary is marked by a freshness of approach, while retaining a devout faithfulness to the text."

    If you are looking for a commentary that provides depth, knowledge and understanding of the Gospel of Mark you will gain an excellent contribution to your library. The commentary provides some great Greek information as well as from the LXX. I would say that if the person is desiring to move from the lay mentality to the scholarly this is the commentary to help in that process.

    This was my first commentary on Mark and it's the one I always turn to first when needing consultation with the text. Lane is a trustworthy scholar who helps make sense of the Mark and brings deeper truths to the surface. This commentary - though not as technical as others - is very pastoral and offers deep insight into applying the text into the real lives of people. This will be a continuing treasure in my library.

    Lane discusses the critical along with his more conservative views with proper balance. For Greek study I would also use the NIGNT entry as well. Overall this is an excellent resource for those who want a thorough study of the topics in Mark.

    Lane's brief history of the book is also quite informative without being overly verbose. A good read as well.
