The Gospel of Mark (New Daily Study Bible Series)

William Barclay

The Gospel of Mark (New Daily Study Bible Series)

William Barclay

$26.99

Paperback
Mark gives us the most human picture of Jesus, describing him simply as 'the carpenter', and speaks most about Jesus' feelings and emotions. This was the first of the synoptic gospels to be written. Mark learned much about Jesus' life from the great apostle, Peter, to whom he was extremely close. To Mark, Jesus was not simply one of us; he was God among us, constantly moving people to a wondering amazement with his words and deeds. Mark's style is simple and honest, adding statement to statement with the word 'and' in the way that an excited and eager child might, giving a freshness and immediacy unique to his thrilling narrative. William Barclay builds on the infectious enthusiasm of Mark, adding wide-eyed wonder to the stories behind the text.

- Publisher 'Go into all the world and preach the goodness.' The Gospel of Mark shows us the reaction of the people to Jesus' ministry. While making clear Jesus' divinity, in Mark's account we also see a very human and even emotional Jesus. The Gospel of Mark is regarded by some as perhaps the most realistic of all the gospels. William Barclay delves with fascination into the questions that fill this gospel and into this joyous account of the life and teachings of Jesus. He offers us insightful new perspective on some of the more difficult passages in Mark's Gospel. It is commonly agreed that Mark was the first gospel to be written and Barclay's interpretation opens its ancient teachings to Christians in the modern world.
