Product Description

Mark, though often eclipsed by the other synoptic gospels, is considered by many scholars to be the earliest written gospel and thus closest to the historical Jesus. In his book, Douglas Hare examines Mark for modern Christians in search of the Jesus as portrayed in these earliest known writings. What emerges is a Jesus whose moral and religious teachings are of secondary importance to that of his life, death, and resurrection. Jesus as depicted in Mark serves as the window through which we may see God. God's love for humankind, Hare contends, is made visible through Mark's Jesus.

Publisher's Description

Mark, often eclipsed by the other Synoptic Gospels, is now considered by many biblical scholars to be the earliest written gospel. This conclusion would place Mark closest to the historical Jesus. In his book, Douglas Hare examines Mark for modern Christians who are in search of the Jesus portrayed in these earliest known writings. What emerges is a Jesus whose moral and religious teachings are of secondary importance to the very fact of his life, death, and resurrection. For it is the Jesus depicted in Mark that serves as the window through which we may see God. God's love for humankind, Hare contends, is made visible through Mark's Jesus.
