This commentary by Henry Barclay Swete, is one of the most in-depth monumental surveys available today. As a bearer of a flashlight holds the beam of light to expose something clearly, so Swete's focus on each verse in Mark using the Greek and Latin leaves little unseen; for he reveals his research. The astute scholar will find this volume sheds much light on the inspired Gospel of Mark as Swete's clearly-stated views reveal much diligent study on his part and should be a challenge for study to the reader. Even as a laser beam pinpoints an object either near or far, Swete shines his scholarly light to pinpoint Christ, throughout the Gospel of Mark, as the humble Servant. As a searchlight revolves around a certain area to search out objects, so Swete in his scholarly approach harmonizes the other Gospels to search out every reference to shed light on his exegesis of Mark. This commentary is a penetrating sunbeam to Greek students. Be prepared to use a Greek Lexicon and Septuagint alongside this volume. It is scholarly researched and written. This excellent and historically enlightening edition is writtien for students of the Scriptures, pastors, and teachers especially. Greek students will be interested to notice that Swete uses the Westcott and Hort Greek text and notes. Swete's mastery of the Greek along with his extensive study, research, and scholarly advice from so many of his scholarly contemporaries brings a shaft of light upon the Gospel of Mark that leaves little originality to the other commentaries of his day. The reader and researcher will find this a valued aid in his study of Mark.
A scholarly, exegetical commentary based on the Greek text of Mark; a masterpiece of evangelical thought.
