The Gospel of Mark
The Gospel of Mark, addressed to an early Christian community perplexed by failure and suffering, presents Jesus as suffering Messiah and Son of God. Recognizing that failure and suffering continue to perplex Christians today, world-renowned New Testament scholar and theologian Francis Moloney marries the rich contributions of traditional historical scholarship with the contemporary approach to the Gospels as narrative. Now in paperback, this commentary combines the highest-level scholarship with pastoral sensitivity. It offers an accessible and thoughtful reading of Mark's narrative to bring the Gospel's story to life for contemporary readers.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"Moloney has provided the same detailed and thoughtful reading of Mark's narrative that scholars familiar with his earlier work on John would expect. He incorporates the latest results of modern scholarship to show how carefully the evangelist has crafted a narrative out of earlier Jesus traditions. Based on the Greek text, this book provides a study of the gospel for pastors, seminary students, and intermediate level students."
--Pheme Perkins, Boston College"Readers are treated to judicious treatment of important issues and troublesome passages. Moloney has a knack for clarifying Mark's goals and theological interests. This commentary is highly recommended."
--Craig A. Evans, Acadia Divinity College
