Mark's Gospel, with some riddles and puzzles, speaks of God as revealed in Jesus of Nazareth. This Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Mark is about God's reign, its present hiddenness and future glory, its surprising way of coming, and its challenge.
This Gospel is about discipleship, its costs and rewards, its failures, and its renewal. Mark is also about grace, and the way Jesus and his followers cross religious and social barriers to pass grace on to those who have been excluded from it.
Mark's resurrection message is open-ende: readers supply their own ending, not just in words, but by following the resurrected Lord.
This book presents essays expanding on themes useful for teaching, preaching, and Bible study; bibliographies; charts; two maps; and an index of ancient sources. "Believers church" refers to churches in the Anabaptist heritage of faith. Mark is the 14th commentary to appear in the BCBC series, sponsored by six denominations: Brethren Church, Church of the Brethren, Brethren in Christ Church, General Conference Mennonite Church, Mennonite Brethren Church, and Mennonite Church.
Pastor Dave5 Stars Out Of 5Mark CommentaryJanuary 25, 2017Pastor DaveQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I own a number of Mark commentaries, but I have found Timothy Geddert's work on Mark to be one of my very favorites. He has dug deep into Mark, and it shows. He is particularly good at synthesis, as he repeatedly points out meaningful literary connections between what might at first appear to be totally unrelated events. His writing style makes for easy reading, and practical applications are found throughout. The only criticism I would mention is his disparaging depiction of pretribulationalism in his treatment of the Olivet Discourse; while he himself offers very limited insights on those important predicted events. However, all in all, I highly recommend Geddert's commentary.
