The Gospel of Mark [PNTC] offers exceptional commentary that clearly shows the second Gospel--though it was a product of the earliest Christian community--to be both relevant and sorely needed in today's church. Written by a biblical scholar who has devoted thirty years to the study of the second Gospel, Edwards aims to interpret Mark according to its theological intentions and purposes, especially as they relate to the life and ministry of Jesus and the call to discipleship. Unique features Edwards' approach include clear descriptions of key terms used by Mark and revealing discussion of the Gospel's literary features, including Mark's use of the 'sandwich' technique and of imagistic motifs and irony. Edwards also proposes a new paradigm for interpreting the difficult 'Little Apocalypse' of chapter 13, and he argues for a new understanding of Mark's controversial ending.
