Question Mark: Understanding the Gospel of Mark
Introduction The Gospel of Mark is a text read by academics, scholars, Christian people, and the person on the street! It is a text that raises many important questions, both scholarly and theological. This booklet aims to act as an introduction to these issues, explaining what they are, and perhaps more importantly, what the gospel is about. This work is aimed at theological students, but hopefully many will profit from it. The main body of the work was written by Douglas Moo, and is taken from Carson, Moo and Morris, An Introduction to the New Testament (Leicester/Grand Rapids: Apollos/Zondervan, 1992) with the kind permission of the author and the publishers. That book is an excellent introduction to the whole of the New Testament. We hope this booklet helps and encourages you to read Mark, and may perhaps lead you on to read the rest of the Bible.
