Each volume begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.
Buist M. Fanning, senior professor emeritus of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
"The most common complaint I hear from my intermediate-level Greek students is that none of the commentaries, even the technical ones, deal comprehensively with the syntactical functions of Greekthings like the function of a genitive, a participle or a particular Greek tense. Finally, the EGGNT series is answering this need with in-depth analysis and exegesis of Greek forms. Joel Williamss commentary on Mark is a stellar addition to the series, a model of accuracy and clarity. This is an ideal textbook for exegetical courses on Marks Gospel and an invaluable tool for pastors teaching through the Gospel."
Mark L. Strauss, university professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary
"Joel Williamss commentary is a treasure trove for lay people, seminarians, and pastors who aim to study Mark in its original language but have mastered only the basics of Koine Greek. Williams supplies a thorough, accessible analysis of Marks vocabulary and grammar along with insightful commentary on significant text-critical problems and exegetical quandaries. As he skillfully leads his readers through the Gospels narrative structure, he highlights the growing conflict between the suffering Son of God and his fearful disciples. Especially helpful to preachers and teachers are Williamss homiletical suggestions, intended to invite congregations into the heart of Marks teaching about Jesus identity and mission as well as the demands and rewards of following him."
Jocelyn McWhirter, Stanley S. Kresge Professor and Chair of Religious Studies, Albion College
"Williamss years of labor in the Greek text of Mark shine in this volume. He brings his familiarity with the best scholarship to bear on his patient examination of Marks grammar and syntax. Alongside his judicious exegetical method, Williams offers numerous points of wise counsel for faithful exposition. There is no other work on the Greek text of Mark that equips readers to handle the second Gospel with such erudition and care."
Daniel M. Gurtner, Ernest and Mildred Hogan Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"The EGGNT series is a great help to exegetes of the New Testament and to preachers seeking to be faithful proclaimers of the text of NT Scripture. With this volume on the Gospel of Mark, Joel Williams makes a contribution to the EGGNT series that is consistent with the purposes and format of the series. With proper attention to the secondary, scholarly literature on Mark, Williams seeks to attend primarily to the text of the Gospel of Mark as it has been laid it out by its Greek-speaking author. Bringing his years of experience in studying Mark and finding a faith-full confession in the Gospels intentionally constructed narrative, Williams seeks to exegete the Gospel with the same faith orientation. With important insights for properly preaching the Gospelsand avoiding all-too-common errors in expositing themWilliams will be a significant friend to those studying the text of the Gospel of Mark for the purpose of proclaiming its message."
Douglas S. Huffman, professor of New Testament, associate dean of biblical and theological studies, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
"The EGGNT series provides valuable tools to students who have had several semesters of Greek but do not know how to apply that training in interpreting the Greek text. In the commentary on Marks Gospel for this series, Joel Williams takes the reader through each verse of Mark and explains the grammatical issues in order to help the student better understand the text. He is thorough in his analysis along with ample references and citations, each of which is valuable to a student set to exegete and study Marks Gospel. In addition, the Introductionwith its explanation of the author, the characteristics of Marks Greek, the structure of the book, and principles for faithful exposition of Marks Gospelis valuable. In summary, this is a useful tool for students and teachers who are committed to studying Gods Word in the Greek text."
Andrew B. Spurgeon, professor of New Testament, Singapore Bible College, and general editor, Asia Bible Commentary
"Joel Williamss Exegetical Guide to the Greek text of Mark contains a wealth of information on this Gospel in an easily accessible format. It provides a tremendous entrée into the Greek text of Mark for beginning Greek students, and it is also a valuable resource for seasoned exegetes. It is rich with information on the style, grammar, discourse features, literary patterns, textual issues, and interpretive problems in the Greek text of Mark. The Bibliographies on various sections of the Greek text provide students with scholarly resources for further research, and the Homiletical Suggestions will help preachers convert their exegesis into sermons. This is a book for everyone who is serious about studying the Greek text of the Gospel of Mark!"
W. Edward Glenny, professor of New Testament and Greek, University of Northwestern, St. Paul
