Teach the Text Commentary: Mark


Baker 2014

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Mark’s concern in his Gospel is that his readers know the good news of who Jesus is: God’s Son and suffering Messiah. It is a book of action, demonstrating Jesus’s identity with a strong emphasis on what he did—acts of service and of power that often left onlookers amazed. Inherent in this revelation of Jesus’s identity is a call to radical discipleship fueled by total dependence on him. Renowned scholar Grant R. Osborne provides keen insights to help preachers and teachers bring Mark’s important message to life for today’s listeners.

Praise for the Print Edition

Grant Osborne’s Mark admirably fulfills the goals of the Teach the Text Commentary Series by making accessible to a wide audience the best of scholarship on the book. I recommend this commentary—and the Teach the Text series generally—to teachers and pastors who want quick access to the basic meaning of the biblical text.

Douglas J. Moo, Wessner Chair of Biblical Studies, Wheaton College

Grant Osborne has been teaching about Jesus and the Gospels for forty years. Now he brings all that experience and expertise to a study of the Gospel of Mark. The result is a concise yet seasoned, sensitive treatment of this important Gospel. So open this book and be prepared to learn more not only about Jesus but also about the walk of faith from a well-qualified guide.

Darrell L. Bock, executive director of cultural engagement and senior research professor of New Testament studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

This commentary shows Grant Osborne at his very best—combining his mature understanding of the Bible with practical application and illustration. Osborne brings a lifetime of studying and living God’s Word to each unit, in which he moves from the big idea to illustration by way of exegesis and teachable theological truths. The illustrations run the gamut from Augustine to Downton Abbey, and many points in between. I thoroughly enjoyed these many and varied examples and think that they will be of great benefit to pastors and teachers who are looking for help in making Mark’s Gospel come alive for their hearers.
