Comprehensive and understandable, the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series brings the timeless messages and relevance of the New Testament to today's readers. With recent scholarship, this series provides vital background and addresses important questions such as authorship and cultural context. The New Collegeville Bible Commentary includes New American Bible translation and will appeal to preachers, teachers, Bible study groups, and Bible readers. This commentary on the Gospel According to Mark makes accessible to the reader the rich traditions of the Hebrew Bible and Early Judaism that form the context and texture of the Christian Gospel. It provides the general historical setting of the Temple, Jerusalem, and the Romans in the first century; calls attention to Mark's use of language and literary structure; and shows how Mark interweaves Jewish Scripture and tradition to interpret the meaning of Jesus. In particular, Marie F. Sabin highlights the influence of the Wisdom writings and how Mark draws on them to present Jesus as God's Wisdom made flesh, and invites readers to reflect on the implications of this Gospel for our own time.
