Mark Hardcover - 2008

by Robert H. Stein


From the publisher

In this new addition to the BECNT series, respected New Testament scholar Robert Stein offers a substantive yet highly accessible commentary on the Gospel of Mark. The commentary focuses primarily on the Markan understanding of the Jesus traditions as reflected in this key New Testament book. For each section in Mark, the author analyzes how it fits the immediate and larger context of the Gospel; offers verse-by-verse comments on the words, phrases, sentences, and themes found in the section; and explores what Mark is seeking to teach.

As with all BECNT volumes, Mark features the author's detailed interaction with the Greek text. It combines academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility to serve as a useful tool for pastors, church leaders, students, and teachers.

From the rear cover

"Bob Stein has written a great commentary on the Gospel of Mark. It is rich with interpretive insight, yet it is very reader friendly. Scholars, pastors, students, and lay readers will appreciate how Stein tackles difficult questions head-on and presents sensible solutions. Reading this commentary gives the reader a real sense of what the evangelist Mark was trying to say and how his original readers would have understood him. It makes an excellent contribution to the BECNT series."
--Craig A. Evans, Houston Baptist University

"This comprehensive commentary is the seasoned work of a first-rate, evangelical scholar. The discussions are well informed, and the positions taken are judicious and fair. Anyone working on the Second Gospel will find significant help here, particularly with regard to the theology and purpose of the evangelist."
--Klyne Snodgrass, North Park Theological Seminary (emeritus)

"A substantial commentary on Mark's gospel. Stein . . . has a sure grasp of the scholarly literature on Mark and provides a thorough and well-balanced exposition of the gospel text."
--Donald Senior, CP, The Bible Today

"The Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series seeks to provide 'commentaries that blend scholarly depth with readability, exegetical detail with sensitivity to the whole, and attention to critical problems with theological awareness.'. . . Stein is particularly well qualified for writing a commentary on the Gospel of Mark for such a series. For years he has devoted himself to scholarly research on Mark's Gospel and also to pastoral training. . . . The result is a commentary distinguished both by its scholarship and by its practical usefulness for pastors. . . . The careful exegesis in this commentary serves as evidence that Stein has thought long and often about the meaning of Mark."
--Joel F. Williams, Review of Biblical Literature
