Mark 9-16: A Handbook on the Greek Text
Publisher Baylor University Press
While the Gospel of Mark has a longstanding reputation as having some of the simplest Greek in the New Testament, Rodney J. Decker proves that even this “simple Greek” is challenging and thought provoking. Mark 1–8 and Mark 9–16 entice readers to engage fully with the text and its intricacies. Decker provides helpful guidance regarding Mark’s distinctive use of Greek and the role that verbal aspect plays in the structuring of the text. When read alongside commentaries on Mark, this handbook will encourage a further understanding of Mark’s views on who Jesus was and what Jesus expects of his followers.
