Mark (2 volumes in 1 / ESV Edition) (Preaching the Word) [eBook]
Jesus, Servant and Savior
In our age of aggressive evil and apathetic faith, the Gospel of Mark resounds with the dynamic power of the Lord Jesus Christ. In what is perhaps the most dramatic and action-packed of the Synoptic Gospels, Mark’s writing continues to inspire increased commitment in the church at large. His portrayal of Christ as the servant-savior takes on fresh relevance in these expositions by respected pastor and author R. Kent Hughes. With careful exegesis and numerous illustrations, the author draws many practical lessons for everyday living and ministry from the text. Written to help preachers and Bible teachers communicate God’s Word more effectively, this engaging commentary covers the entire book of Mark and now includes Scripture quotations drawn from the ESV Bible.
