The first New Testament Library volume to focus on a Gospel, this commentary offers a careful reading of the book of Mark. Internationally respected interpreter M. Eugene Boring brings a lifetime of research into the Gospels and Jesus into this lively discussion of the first Gospel.
The New Testament Library offers authoritative commentary on every book and major aspect of the New Testament, as well as classic volumes of scholarship. The commentaries in this series provide fresh translations based on the best available ancient manuscripts, offer critical portrayals of the historical world in which the books were created, pay careful attention to their literary design, and present a theologically perceptive exposition of the text.
This commentary volume is available individually, or as part of the following sets:
New Testament Library Commentary Series (19 Vols.)
Old & New Testament Library Commentary Series (68 Vols.)
"The author's treatment of the Markan text is both comprehensive in scope and scholarly in tenor. His exegetical comments are cautiously advanced, appropriately balanced, and judiciously expressed. The style, too, is very readable."
— William R. Telford, Durham University, in Review of Biblical Literature
