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."
