Building on solid biblical exegesis and practical exposition, Garrett discusses the ancient traditions related to the theme of temptation; then explores Jesus' own experiences of testing throughout the course of his earthly life and ministry. Offers a fresh perspective on Mark's views of the church, discipleship, and pertinent pastoral applications. 212 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
This engaging study examines the considerable attention Mark's Gospel gives to Jesus' confrontation with temptation, not only during his time in the wilderness but throughout the whole course of his earthly life and ministry. Building on solid biblical exegesis and practical exposition, Garrett discusses the ancient traditions related to the theme of testing/temptation and then explores Jesus' own experiences with temptation in Mark. In the course of her work, Garrett reads key passages of Mark in light of first-century Jewish and Christian cultural conventions about the testing or tempting of the righteous. This background material affords a fresh perspective on Mark's views concerning such fundamental issues as the person and work of Jesus, the church, the twelve disciples, and the nature of Christian discipleship.
