Mark is a Gospel on the move. Jesus travels quickly, conversations happen abruptly, and the narrative is snappy. The shortest and most concise of the Gospels, Mark contains confusing parables, and repeated demands by Jesus for secrecy. The Gospel ends with the perplexing scene of the women fleeing in fear.
Ralph Earle’s commentary on the Gospel of Mark helps explains the confusing elements of this important Gospel. From Jesus’ early ministry, Earle shows us that what Mark lacks in length it makes up in depth.
