-Publisher

This engaging study provides a deeper understanding of the meaning of Jesus' life and ministry by exploring the extensive attention Mark's Gospel gives to Jesus' confrontation with temptation. Building on solid biblical exegesis and practical exposition, Susan Garrett discusses the ancient traditions related to the theme of testing/temptation and then explores Jesus' own experiences with temptation in Mark. She also considers the implications of Mark's message on testing for us today as we strive to faithfully follow "the way of the Lord" in the face of our own tests of affliction and seduction.

This engaging study examines the considerable attention Mark's Gospel gives to Jesus' confrontation with temptation, not only during his time in the wilderness but throughout the whole course of his earthly life and ministry. Building on solid biblical exegesis and practical exposition, Garrett discusses the ancient traditions related to the theme of testing/temptation and then explores Jesus' own experiences with temptation in Mark. In the course of her work, Garrett reads key passages of Mark in light of first-century Jewish and Christian cultural conventions about the testing or tempting of the righteous. This background material affords a fresh perspective on Mark's views concerning such fundamental issues as the person and work of Jesus, the church, the twelve disciples, and the nature of Christian discipleship.
