Fortress Press Studies in Mark presents six volumes of fresh, scholarly insights into the Second Gospel. The collection analyzes oral tradition and the social history surrounding Christianity’s origins. It imagines Mark’s story as a performance—the author as composer, narrator as performer, audience as gathered community. It provides an interpretive retelling of the Markan version of Christ’s life and parallels Mark’s Gospel to the Parable of the Sower—a call to nonbelievers to have faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The collection concludes with an examination, questioning, and reinterpretation of Markan Christological research.
The Logos Bible Software edition of Fortress Press Studies in Mark is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of Mark’s Gospel.
