Book Excerpt :

The earliest of the four Gospels, the book portrays Jesus as an enigmatic figure, struggling with enemies, his inner and external demons, and with his devoted but disconcerted disciples. Unlike other gospels, his parables are obscure, to be explained secretly to his followers. With an introduction by Nick Cave

Book Short Summary:

A New Light on John’s Gospel The Gospel according to John has always been recognized as different from the “synoptic” accounts of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. But what explains the difference? In this new translation and verse-byverse commentary, Michael Pakaluk suggests an answer and unlocks a twothousand-year-old mystery. Mary’s Voice in the Gospel according to John reveals the subtle but powerful influence of the Mother of Jesus on the fourth Gospel. In his dying words, Jesus committed his Mother to the care of John, the beloved disciple, who “from that hour . . . took her into his own home.” Pakaluk draws out the implications of that detail, which have been overlooked for centuries. In Mary’s remaining years on earth, what would she and John have talked about? Surely no subject was as close to their hearts as the words and deeds of Jesus. Mary’s unique perspective and intimate knowledge of her Son must have shaped the account of Jesus’ life that John would eventually compose. With the same scholarship, imagination, and fidelity that he applied to Mark’s Gospel in The Memoirs of St. Peter, Pakaluk brings out the voice of Mary in John’s, from the famous prologue about the Incarnation of the Word to the Evangelist’s closing avowal of the reliability of his account. This remarkably fresh translation and commentary will deepen your understanding of the most sublime book of the New Testament.

Book Short Summary:

It would be difficult to find a better starting point for the present inquiry than the words which stand at the head of the canonical accounts of the life of Jesus. “The Gospel according to S. Mark” suggests clearly enough the nature of the facts and the method of their investigation. It implies that there is one Gospel, and that is presented in more than one form. It sanctions a distinction between the essential facts and interpretation of facts upon which Christian belief depends, and the partial and more or less accidental presentation of them which survives in the written records of the evangelists. There is a Gospel behind the Gospels: but it is through the Gospels that the Gospel is to be know.

  • Pdf File: the-new-gospel-of-the-kingdom-according-to-saint-mark.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book is an exciting, concise, and complete presentation of the gospel of the kingdom. It is an insightful update and upgrade of the gospel of the kingdom according to Saint Mark, which is the shortest of the four gospels. Many are trying to spread the gospel of the kingdom by providing lost souls copies of the whole Bible. This is like giving a hungry baby a porterhouse steak to eat. Of course, the baby cannot handle it. Others pass out tracts or pamphlets, which fail to give our Savior all the credit for all he has done. This work gives the whole story of his life, teachings, sacrifice, and victory over death. It will be a powerful tool for those dedicated to spreading the gospel of the kingdom to all nations. The goal of this book is to bring reverence, respect, and honor to the name of our Lord and Savior. It lifts him as our king in Earth as he will be lifted as King of kings in Heaven. It uses his Hebrew name and identifies him as King Yeshua. Several years ago, someone asked, "Why do you Christians obey and worship someone who is at most a Jewish Rabbi?" Sadly, there was no satisfactory answer for him. A careful study of the four gospel reveals that none of them directly identifies the Savior as a king. The wise men recognized his royalty at his birth, when they presented him royal gifts and worshipped him. Finally, at his crucifixion in defiance of his enemies, Pilate recognized his kingship at his death. His enemies did everything they could to deny his kingship. This book gives him the crown they did not want him to have. It acknowledges his kingship and refuses to let them win. No, we do not obey and worship a Jewish Rabbi. We obey and worship King Yeshua, who is the Son of God, the King of kings, the malik Almuluk, Wan wang Zhi wang, Hari ng mga Hari, Roi des Rois, Konig der Konige, Raja'o no raja, raajaon ke raja, O no nakanoo, wang jung wang, rei dos reis, Korol' Koroley, Rey de Reyes, raja raja, Mfalme wa Wafalme, and vua cua cac vi vua yenegesitati nigusi. He is King of kings.

  • Pdf File: apocalyptic-imagination-in-the-gospel-of-mark.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This narrative study uses Mark 3:22–30 as an interpretive lens to show that the Gospel of Mark has a thoroughly apocalyptic outlook. Unlike many narrative studies, this book clarifies Mark’s symbols, metaphors, and themes in view of the socio-religious context in which it was written. Mark’s apocalyptic discourse portrays the Spirit-filled Jesus in a struggle against Satan to free people for a community that does God’s will. This discourse develops throughout the Gospel, functioning to persuade readers that God displays power from weakness, and offering a coherent reading of Mark.

Book Short Summary:

All that we know of Jesus and his original message is derived from a few ancient texts, among which the Gospel According to Mark is particularly fascinating and often perplexing. Mark, the shortest of the four Gospels of the New Testament, came first and planted the seeds of thought from which the Christian tradition has grown. We gain insight into the Gospel as we begin to let go of assumptions rooted in long familiarity. The Seminal Gospel is an exploration of Mark and an extended personal reflection on what his telling of the story of Jesus can mean to us today. It reproduces the King James Version of Marks text in forty chapters, providing commentary that is explanatory and insightful. It draws broadly on the authors literary, historical, and theological interests.

Book Short Summary:

To Christians worldwide, the man Jesus of Nazareth is the centerpiece of history, the object of faith, hope, and worship. Even those who do not follow him admit the vast influence of his life. For anyone interested in knowing more about Jesus, study of the four biblical Gospels is essential. The second edition of Four Portraits, One Jesus has been updated throughout to meet the needs to today's students. It is a thorough yet accessible introduction to the four biblical Gospels and their subject, the life and person of Jesus. Like different artists rendering the same subject using different styles and points of view, the Gospels paint four highly distinctive portraits of the same remarkable Jesus. With clarity and insight, Mark Strauss illuminates these four books addressing the following important areas: First he addresses the nature, origin, methods for study, and historical, religious, and cultural backgrounds of the Gospels. He then moves on to closer study of each narrative and its contribution to our understanding of Jesus, investigating things such as plot, characters, and theme. Finally, he pulls it all together with a detailed examination of what the Gospels teach about Jesus' ministry, message, death, and resurrection, with excursions into the quest for the historical Jesus and the historical reliability of the Gospels. This textbook together with its workbook, video lectures, and laminated sheet gives students everything they need for a thorough and enriching study of Jesus and the Gospels.

Book Short Summary:

Sin was an extremely important and serious concern for the earliest Christians and the authors of the New Testament writings. Early Christians came to see the life and ministry of Jesus as challenging presumptions about the meanings of sin and faithfulness. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of different understandings of sin in early Christianity. Jeffrey S. Siker describes how the earliest Christian voices represented in the New Testament writings understood "sin" not only as a theological abstraction, but also as a real reflection upon human thought and behavior that violated right relationships with both other human beings and with God. Siker explores language about sin in relation to the Jewish and Greco-Roman contextual worlds of the New Testament writings, and examines the development and change of these worlds in relation to the modern concept of sin.

In this engaging introduction to the New Testament, Professor Dale B. Martin presents a historical study of the origins of Christianity by analyzing the literature of the earliest Christian movements.

He next sets the Greco-Roman world in historical context and explains the place of Judaism within it. In the discussion of each New Testament book that follows, the author addresses theological themes, then emphasizes the significance of the writings as ancient literature and as sources for historical study. Throughout the volume, Martin introduces various early Christian groups and highlights the surprising variations among their versions of Christianity.

Book Short Summary:

What do the gospels contribute to our understanding of nonviolent versus violent means of conflict resolution? Many biblical scholars contend that the gospels have little to say on this subject. Others seek answers in ethical principles found in Jesus's teachings, which may or may not be interpreted as accepting or rejecting violence. In Nonviolent Story Robert Beck proposes a new way of reading the Gospel of Mark, one that points to a challenging message of nonviolent resistance as reflected in the story of Jesus's life and ministry. According to narrative analysis, the message of the Gospel is found in the structure of the story itself. Beck contends that the narrative form of Mark's gospel portrays Jesus as a protagonist who does not avoid conflict, but enters into it without himself resorting to violence. He thus serves as a model of the nonviolent resistance that inspired Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. By using literary analysis to explore Mark's gospel, Beck opens up a counter-story that challenges the prevailing American cultural myth of constructive violence. Beck uses the Western tales of Louis L'Amour as the narrative essence of this pop mythology--and the total opposite of the story told by Mark.

Book Short Summary:

"The gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God."

Taking into account the cultural, theological, and Old Testament contexts of each passage, MacArthur tackles interpretive challenges and fairly evaluates differing views, giving the reader confidence in his conclusions. The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series comes from the experience, wisdom, and insight of one of the most trusted ministry leaders and Bible scholars of our day. Each volume was written to be as comprehensive and accurate as possible, dealing thoroughly with every key phrase and word in the Scripture without being unnecessarily technical. This commentary will help to give a better, fuller, richer understanding of God's Word, while challenging the reader to a vibrant personal spiritual walk. A great resource for pastors, teachers, leaders, students, or anyone desiring to dig deeper into Scripture

Is there anything holy in Springfield, the home to irascible Bart Simpson and his naive dad Homer, their enthusiastic evangelical neighbor Ned Flanders, the sourpuss minister Rev. Lovejoy, and the dozens of other unique characters who inhabit the phenomenally popular TV show? In this revision of the 2001 bestseller, author Mark Pinsky says yes! In this entertaining and enlightening book, Pinsky shows how The Simpsons engages issues of religion and morality in a thoughtful, provocative, and genuinely respectful way. With three new chapters and updates to reflect the 2001-2006 seasons, Pinsky has given a thorough facelift to the book that Publishers Weekly called "thoughtful and genuinely entertaining." The new material includes chapters on Buddhism and gay marriage and an extensive afterword that explores how religion is treated on the animated shows that have followed in the footsteps of The Simpsons: South Park, Family Guy, Futurama, American Dad, and King of the Hill.

Book Short Summary:

The monograph discusses the short formulae of the ‘gospel’ (euangelion) as the first reflected expressions of Christian faith. They adapted the apocalyptic expectations to express the Easter experience and shaped the earliest literary Gospel (Mark). This book analyzes Gospels as texts that (re-)introduced Jesus traditions into the Christian liturgy and literature. The last chapters are devoted to the origins of the idea of Christian canon.

Book Short Summary:

Christians are accustomed to saying that there are four Gospels: the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. However, Paul also refers to his Epistle to the Romans as a gospel. In this booklet taken from the Life-study of Romans, Witness Lee opens up the subjective gospel in this crucial Epistle of Paul. The gospel in the first four books of the New Testament concerns Christ in the flesh as He lived among His disciples before His death and resurrection. The gospel in Romans concerns Christ as the Spirit of life who indwells the believers after His resurrection for their sanctification, transformation, and glorification in the divine life. This is something deeper and more subjective than the Christ in the Gospels.

Book Short Summary:

The problems with the Bible that New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman discussed in his bestseller Misquoting Jesus—and on The Daily Show with John Stewart, NPR, and Dateline NBC, among others—are expanded upon exponentially in his latest book: Jesus, Interrupted. This New York Times bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors, and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus—information that scholars know… but the general public does not. If you enjoy the work of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and John Shelby Spong, you’ll find much to ponder in Jesus, Interrupted.

Book Short Summary:

Perhaps the most striking development in biblical studies in recent years has been the proliferation of new methods used in approaching the texts. While in most circles the historical-critical method remains fundamental, biblical interpreters now routinely draw on new approaches developed in linguistics, literary studies, and the social sciences. In recent years an important testing ground for the application of these new methods to the Bible has been the Gospel of Mark. As a fast moving and sophisticated narrative about Jesus' public ministry issuing in his passion and death, Mark's Gospel lends itself to various forms of literary, historical, and theological analysis. This book describes and analyzes the many attempts at applying the new methods to Mark's Gospel. It considers how this Gospel has been approached from different angles according to the perspectives of modern literary criticism, examines how its major theological topics have been treated, explores efforts at clarifying its historical setting, and discusses the engaged--feminist, political, and pastoral--readings this Gospel has generated in recent years. +

Book Short Summary:

Applying a literary and reader-oriented approach, this book asks what the Gospel of Mark refers to when it promises “the coming of the Son of Man” (13:24–27). This reading not only provides the solution to the various difficulties in understanding those verses, but, unlike other readings, it allows Mark 13:24–27 to be read as an integral part of the Gospel according to Mark. An examination of the wider narrative of the Gospel and Mark 13 itself, both in form and function as well as in its many details, demonstrates that these verses raise expectations that are then shown to be fulfilled in Jesus’ death, resurrection, and launch of the gentile mission. As contemporary Christians await the future return of Christ, we already look back on “the coming of the Son of Man,” which ought to inspire us to take further steps forward in Christian mission.
