Available Platforms

About this Series

Pastors with a passion for sound exposition and scholars with a heart for pastoral leadership have joined forces to produce this exciting commentary series.

Each volume, informed by the best of up-to-date evangelical scholarship, presents passage-by-passage commentary based on the NIV along with background information on authorship, setting, theme and various interpretive issues. Seldom have such readable commentary and reliable research helps been available together! Preachers, teachers, students and other individuals who want to dig deep into the heart of the New Testament will find an indispensable companion in the IVP New Testament Commentary Series.

About this Volume

This one-volume commentary on Mark can also be purchased as part of a multi-volume set.

The Gospel of Mark is widely regarded today as the first Gospel to be written. Until recent decades, its fast-paced, seemingly straight-forward presentation led most readers to overlook its subtle theological sophistication.

Probing its depths, Ronald Kernaghan invites readers into a fascinating exploration of Mark's Gospel as a parable, an open-ended story that invites us on a lifelong journey of discipleship. In this engaging, pastorally oriented commentary, readers will find an introduction with background material concerning authorship, audience, date, provenance and purpose. A passage-by-passage exposition follows that focuses on understanding what Mark had to say to his original readers in order to see its relevance for the church today.

Students, pastors, Bible teachers and everyone who wants to understand the message of Mark for the church will benefit from this excellent resource.
