Mark wrote his Gospel to explain why and how Jesus is the Messiah and Son of God who fulfills God's promises as he proclaims and embodies the coming kingdom of God. Mark emphasizes Jesus' authority and also his suffering and death as God's will for his messianic mission.
Tyndale New Testament Commentaries: Mark from Eckhard Schnabel seeks to help today's Christian disciples communicate the significance of Jesus and the transforming power of the good news. An exegetical commentary on the Gospel of Mark, this volume will be useful for preachers, Bible teachers, and non-specialists alike.
"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
— Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."
— Peter Adam, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."
— D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"The evenness and quality of this series are remarkable."
— Christianity Today
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."
— Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary
