The product of a number of years of reflection on the Gospel of Mark, this book explains in a clear and understandable way the contribution that the evangelist has made to the theology of the developing Jesus tradition. Joining forces with those who see Mark as a theologian of some considerable creativity, Dr. Telford emphasizes the importance of context (the historical and the contemporary) and method (the historical-critical approach with insights drawn from the newer literary approaches) for the proper understanding of Mark.

"This is a worthy addition to the Cambridge series which addresses New Testament Theology book-by-book. Telford is an experienced interpreter of Mark, whose vast knowledge of the gospel, its background, and related secondary literature is apparent throughout this volume. The book...is very tightly argued. For courses on Mark this book is indispensable." Mark McEntire, Society of Biblical Literature "Telford has put together a thoughtful and helpful resource for scholars studying the Gospel of Mark. One of the greatest assets of this work is the bibliography and footnotes. Within them is a wealth of important scholarship. Anyone interested in Biblical studies and Theology will do well to read this book." Ashland Theological Journal "This is a worthy addition to the Cambridge series which addresses New Testament Theology book-by-book. Telford is an experienced interpreter of Mark, whose vast knowledge of the gospel, its background, and related secondary literature is apparent throughout this volume. The book...is very tightly argued. For courses on Mark this book is indispensable." Mark McEntire, Society of Biblical Literature
