Mark, A Video Study
Mark's fast-paced, powerful, and dramatic Gospel takes the reader on a breath-taking tour through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. Part of the Zondervan Beyond the Basics Video Series, Mark, A Video Study, taught by Mark Strauss, uses a narrative and theological approach to provide insight into the Evangelist's story-telling craft, theological purpose, and narrative themes.
Mark, A Video Study, along with accompanying book Mark from the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series, stresses both the message of Jesus as he proclaims the kingdom of God and the mission of Jesus as he suffers and dies as a ransom for human sin. Lectures examine the biblical text in its original environment, with an emphasis on practical messages and passages of great theological depth. Strauss provides interpretive insights into the background and meaning of the text, and discusses how the message of the text fits within the book itself and its broader biblical-theological context. Learners will discover Jesus's call to be his disciples and to live in obedience to his kingdom calling in their lives today.
