Quick Overview

Israel expected the Messiah to be a conquering hero who would liberate the Jews from their Roman servitude. But instead, Christ came as a suffering servant to liberate all mankind from slavery to sin. The Gospel of Mark records Christ's public ministry as a journey to the Cross, yet - Paradoxically again - as a time of vigorous action when His miracles astounded the multitudes, and His boldness infuriated His foes.

About the Orthodox Bible Study Companion Series

This commentary was written for your grandmother and your plumber. That is, it was written for the average layperson, for the nonprofessional who feels a bit intimidated by the presence of copious footnotes, long bibliographies, and all those other things which so enrich the lives of academics.

Working from a literal translation of the origfinal Greek, this commentary examines the text section by section, explaining its meaning in everyday language. Written from an Orthodox and patristic perspective, it maintains a balance between the devotional and exegetical, feeding both the heart and the mind.
