Description

Mark's Gospel takes us to the heart of Jesus's mission, and vividly presents us with the teaching and actions which turned the world upside down.

In this warm-hearted commentary, Chris Moore pays particular attention to Mark's use of the Old Testament and draws upon a wide range of global and historical Christian writings to show how deeply subversive Jesus is. Mark is a short Gospel, but it is far from simple. It is rich with doctrine and invites his readers to follow the Christ who is none other than the Son of God.

If you are looking to get back into your faith, or someone who is already pretty headstrong in their beliefs this is a great book to understanding the books of the bible.

I loved this guide through the gospel of Mark! It was accurate and Biblical, keeping the scripture in context. I loved the exposition, especially in the parts of Mark that are unique to this gospel alone.

Another great book from this series. An excellent introduction situates the gospel securely and highlights some of the key things to keep in mind when reading or studying Mark’s gospel. The excellent knowledge of liturgy and first century growing Christianity and life is a real help in positioning what was happening as Mark was writing the gospel and where the assumptions come from. This grounds the book and rooted me as the early church was established and helped with the understanding of the text.
The author doesn’t make assumptions or take shortcuts, there is a great passage in understanding what messiah will have meant as it was used, as well as an explanation of the use of a lamb in the imagery.
The explanation of the passages is done prosaically, with accuracy of word use but also clearly and for an audience who doesn’t start their reading with a theology degree. Day to day language makes grappling with some of the heavier themes of the good news possible. A situating of the gospel passages in human time is also very helpful to follow the life of Christ in all its glory.

This was my first commentary and I really enjoyed it. It had been a while since I read The book of Mark and even when I did, it was during sermons so it was really nice to be able to dig deeper.

This is much more in-depth than I was expecting! I enjoyed the lengthy introductory section, as it was rich in historical and cultural background for the Gospel. I look forward to referencing this often in the future, as the sections on the passages within Mark are full of valuable inisght and information.

This was a pretty good Bible Commentary. I was hesitant about this because I've never heard of the writers, but I was impressed.

Mark is one of my favorite books of the Bible, so I was really excited to get a deeper look at what others thought. It helped give me a new perspective and more to think about.

I learned a lot from this and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new Bible Commentary.
