Product Information

Written when the fledging Christian faith was experiencing a major crisis during the Jewish war, Mark provides us with the first window on how the life and teachings of Jesus were presented to a largely non-Jewish audience.

According to Dr. Witherington, the structure of Mark demonstrates that this Gospel is biographically focused on the identity of Jesus and the importance of knowing who he is – the Christ, the Son of God. This finding reveals that Christology stood at the heart of the earliest Christians' faith. It also shows how important it was to these earliest Christians to persuade others about the nature of Jesus, both as a historical figure and as the Savior of the world.

Maximum Application value for Preaching and Teaching
Throughout this commentary Dr. Witherington employs “Bridging the Horizons” sections to point to the relevance of the text for believers today. If you preach or teach, these volumes offer unique applications for lessons and sermons.
