Mark emphasizes Jesus' authority and also his suffering and death as God's will for his messianic mission. This Tyndale New Testament commentary from Eckhard Schnabel seeks to help today's Christian disciples communicate the significance of Jesus and the transforming power of the good news. An exegetical commentary on the Gospel of Mark, this volume will be useful for preachers, Bible teachers, and non-specialists alike.

The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Masterful CommenatryJuly 26, 2017The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Just like were placing a Hall of Fame sports figure, replace a legendary volume in a scholarly Commentary series is no easy task. Needless to say Eckhard J Schnabel had his work cut out for him to replace R. Alan Coles commentary on the gospel of Mark for the spectacular Tyndale New Testament Commentary series.
Eckhard J. Schnabel who also serves as a general editor for the series is a distinguished scholar and is no stranger to commentaries in the New Testament. And Schnabel apostrophe s academic credentials shine in this studious commentary. The Tyndale New Testament commentary is a great introduction commentary for pastors and laymen alike and requires no knowledge of the Civil Greek language. Yet this commentary is part of a growing trend of added girth in the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series. Weighing in at 441 pages this commentary is almost the length of a mid-range commentary. Yet the accessibility of this commentary makes it a wonderful introduction to the gospel of Mark. I own and have read many commentaries on the gospel of Mark and this new commentary is one of the greatest additions to that lineage. Furthermore this commentary shows great potential in giving phenomenal application combined with superior exegesis.
Mark, begins with the typical study into the introductory matters of this book of the Bible, yet while introductions are common, is atypical for Fee is so through with his research and interaction with recent scholarship. In a day where these matters are either glossed over to get to the exegesis of the text or are so cumbersome that they become useless, Fee found a good balance in being thorough, communicating depth and attention to recent scholarship, without losing the message of the text.
With reference to the commentary sections on Mark, Schnabel , expertly navigates the text showing the original context of passage while applying it directly to the modern day reader. He also uses a pastoral tone in many of his comments yet never sacrifices his scholastic approach. The outlines that he provides are also of great use for a pastor looking to preach though the Gospel of Mark.
In recommending , Mark, to others I would whole heartily recommend this commentary to students of scripture, with one caveat. By this I mean I recommend this work to Pastors, Bible Teachers, Bible College Students, and to a limited extent educated Laymen looking to teach a Sunday school class, there is enough scholarly weight to this work to understand a particular issue in the text while giving aid to pastors in preaching the text. There are many commentaries about the Gospel of Mark available at this moment but, Mark, of the TNTC series is a giant leap above the rest.

Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great New Commentary!July 3, 2017Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heres a brand new volume in the second cycle of revisions on the beloved Tyndale New Testament Commentaries (TNTC) series. The new editor, Eckhard Schnabel, contributes this new volume. I really am not familiar with Schnabel, but have thought that whoever had the task of filling the shoes of Leon Morris really had their hands full in light of his incredible scholarship. After perusing this volume, I have great hope for a series I really respect.
Theres no doubt this volume really improves on the earlier Cole volume. Schnabel was given more space and made good use of it. I find it superior to its competitors in other similar series as well. Ive just recently reviewed the IVPNT volume on Mark and much prefer this one.
His Introduction begins by discussing Marks place among the Gospels and its history of interpretation. He describes and personally holds to the priority of Mark. He reached conservative conclusions on authorship, date, and historical reliability. His section on theological emphases is well done and he ends with a clear outline.
The commentary proper makes up the bulk of the book and is not only helpful, but well written. That is a winning trait missing in many commentaries. Every passage I reviewed was never superficial nor prolix. I thought many details and good points were brought out for the reader.
For its target audience, this would have to be highly rated. I recommend it!
