The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) closes the gap between the Greek text and the available lexical and grammatical tools, providing all the necessary information for greater understanding of the text. The series makes interpreting any given New Testament book easier, especially for those who are hard pressed for time but want to preach or teach with accuracy and authority.
The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament is a series that seeks to bring together classroom, study, and pulpit by providing the student or pastor with the information needed to understand and expound the Greek text of the New Testament.
Each volume begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to a translation and paraphrase of the whole book and extensive paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text. Also included are homiletical helps and suggestions for further study along with a glossary of grammatical and rhetorical terms. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.
This volume is available for individual purchase, or as part of the Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament series.
"Joel Williams’s volume on Mark is a strong addition to the valuable EGGNT series started by Murray Harris. Providing expert analysis of grammatical features of the Greek text, it also contains well-informed insights about the narrative structure and major themes of the Gospel, suggestions about how to preach or teach individual portions, and excellent bibliographies of classic older works as well as quite recent publications worth pursuing for further study. Highly recommended for those with only a little Greek, as well as for those with more advanced knowledge who want seasoned guidance on the text and message of Mark." - Buist M. Fanning, senior professor emeritus of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
"The most common complaint I hear from my intermediate-level Greek students is that none of the commentaries, even the technical ones, deal comprehensively with the syntactical functions of Greek—things like the function of a genitive, a participle or a particular Greek tense. Finally, the EGGNT series is answering this need with in-depth analysis and exegesis of Greek forms. Joel Williams’s commentary on Mark is a stellar addition to the series, a model of accuracy and clarity. This is an ideal textbook for exegetical courses on Mark’s Gospel and an invaluable tool for pastors teaching through the Gospel." - Mark L. Strauss, university professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary
"The EGGNT series is a great help to exegetes of the New Testament and to preachers seeking to be faithful proclaimers of the text of NT Scripture. With this volume on the Gospel of Mark, Joel Williams makes a contribution to the EGGNT series that is consistent with the purposes and format of the series. With proper attention to the secondary, scholarly literature on Mark, Williams seeks to attend primarily to the text of the Gospel of Mark as it has been laid it out by its Greek-speaking author. Bringing his years of experience in studying Mark and finding a faith-full confession in the Gospel’s intentionally constructed narrative, Williams seeks to exegete the Gospel with the same faith orientation. With important insights for properly preaching the Gospels—and avoiding all-too-common errors in expositing them—Williams will be a significant friend to those studying the text of the Gospel of Mark for the purpose of proclaiming its message. - Douglas S. Huffman, professor of New Testament, associate dean of biblical and theological studies, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
