This scholarly work includes a review of the Markan narratives about Jesus' baptism, his transfiguration, and his suffering and death, as well as the discussion of his relation to Elijah, his identity as "the stone which the builder rejected," and the question of whether or not he is David's son.

Above the average Pastor?
3 stars By Wally Bocos, Jun 25 2018
Technical book on Mark's use of Isaian motifs.
Excellent treatment of Mark 9:11-13

As an armchair student of theology I found the book concentrated heavily on the proving or disproving of hypotheses. Although the book is excellent in its intent; to demonstrate the Isaian motifs found throughout the gospel of Mark, acting as its backbone, I consider this book to be beyond the average pastor range of study for every Sunday.

Having said this, I used this book to gain a deeper appreciation of Mark's use of not only Isaiah, but a conflation of Psalms in various passages!

It therefore needs two separate scores.
For the layman 3.5 oo 5
For the "Serious" student 4.5 oo 5
