Beschreibung vom Buch

<p>Timothy J. Geddert views Mark as a profound theologian and accomplished writer, not a mere compiler of traditions. Mark&rsquo;s text provokes careful reflection on its subtle and challenging message of hope and its call to faithfully follow Jesus <em>on the way</em>.</p><p>Mark&rsquo;s Gospel speaks plainly, yet sometimes in riddles, of God as revealed in Jesus of Nazareth, <em>the Christ, the Son of God</em>. Mark presents God&rsquo;s reign, its present hiddenness and future glory, and its surprising way of coming. Mark is also about Jesus and his followers crossing barriers to pass God&rsquo;s grace on to those formerly excluded. Mark&rsquo;s resurrection message is open-ended. Readers supply their own ending, not just in words, but by following their resurrected Lord.</p><p>Includes essays on themes useful for teaching, preaching, and Bible study; bibliographies; charts; two maps; and an index of ancient sources.</p>
