Mark: A Handbook on the Greek Text
offers teachers and students a comprehensive guide to the grammar and vocabulary of Mark. A perfect supplement to any commentary, this volume's lexical, analytical, and syntactical analysis is a helpful tool in navigating New Testament literature. Rodney J. Decker leads students toward both a greater understanding of the Greek text and an appreciation for the textual and rhetorical intricacies not available in English translations.
About the series:
What distinguishes the Baylor Handbooks on the Greek New Testament
from other available resources is the detailed and comprehensive attention paid to the Greek text of the New Testament. Each handbook provides a convenient reference tool that explains the syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, deals with text-critical questions that have a significant bearing on how the text is understood, and addresses questions relating to the Greek text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries, all in a succinct and accessible manner.
This volume is part of the Baylor Handbooks on the Greek New Testament Series. You can purchase the entire New Testament Set here or a set of both Old and New Testament volumes
on this page.
"These two volumes provide an exceptionally useful resource for those who want a sure guide to understanding the Greek text of Mark’s gospel."
—Donald Senior, CP, Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, The Bible Today
"What an excellent resource. Rodney Decker’s Mark 1–8 and Mark 9–16 are every exegete’s dream. Phrase-by-phrase and word-by-word Decker works his way through Mark’s Greek text, shedding light on points of grammar, meaning of words, and usage, all the while taking care not to overinterpret or discover nuances that really are not present. Everyone who engages the Gospel of Mark in its original language will profit from these great volumes."
—Craig A. Evans, John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Baptist University
"Decker brings us closer to Mark, so that we realize how little we saw."
—J. Andrew Doole, Review of Biblical Literature
