I offer the theological perspective on two pericopes from Mark.  As they say, it’s a diverse group of scholars and pastors who are offering commentary, and no one will like everything.  But they were fun to write.

Feasting on the Gospels – Mark

Feasting on the Gospels is a new seven-volume series that follows up on the success of the Feasting on the Word series to provide another preaching resource, this time on the most prominent and most preached upon books in the Bible: the four Gospels. With contributions from a diverse and respected group of scholars and pastors, Feasting on the Gospels includes completely new material that covers every single passage in the Gospels, making it suitable for both pastors who preach from the lectionary and pastors who do not. Moreover, these volumes incorporate the unique format of Feasting on the Word, giving preachers four perspectives to choose from for each Gospel passage: theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical. Feasting on the Gospels offers a unique resource for all who preach, either continuously or occasionally, on the Gospels.
