This book presents the reader with a comprehensive view of the theology underlying the first narrative account of the life of Jesus. In Chapter 1 Dr Telford introduces the background of the text and its general message, attempting briefly to place the Gospel (and therefore its theology) in its historical setting. In the second chapter, he describes and analyses the Gospel's theology, again from an historical perspective and with particular regard to its original context. In the third chapter, Telford goes on to examine the Gospel in relation to other relevant writings of the New Testament. Briefly reviewing this larger corpus and highlighting parallels and contrasts, where appropriate, he seeks to locate the Gospel's theology in its wider canonical context. The fourth and final chapter ranges even further afield, commenting on the Gospel's history of interpretation and on its significance in the contemporary context.
"This is a worthy addition to the Cambridge series which addresses New Testament Theology book-by-book. Telford is an experienced interpreter of Mark, whose vast knowledge of the gospel, its background, and related secondary literature is apparent throughout this volume. The book...is very tightly argued. For courses on Mark this book is indispensable." Mark McEntire, Society of Biblical Literature
Clear and understandable explanation of Mark??'s contribution to the theology of the developing Jesus tradition.
