For each section of the Bible, the Focus on the Bible Commentaries summarize the passage of Scripture, including the intentions of the authors, the historical and cultural environment, and the questions and issues raised by a particular passage. But most importantly, the Focus on the Bible Commentaries brings you into the heart of the Bible, by explaining Scripture in an accessible way that makes sense for daily Christian living.
Mark's Gospel is a book for today's people in today's world. It is vivid, appealing powerfully to the eye of the imagination.
This is an age of new interest in the supernatural, with so many possibilities of deception. Here is Jesus, the True God and perfect Man, working the supernatural works of God. Today harrowing pictures of suffering bombards us all and we ask 'Why?' Here is God's great Suffering Servant, showing us that God cares. Most of all, today's people are fascinated by Jesus himself. Who was this Man? Indeed, if, as Mark believed, he really did rise from the dead, we should re-phrase the question: Who is this Man? Who did he claim to be? All this and much more, Mark's dynamic book brings to us.
