Item Description...
Overview
The absence of stories of Jesus' birth and infancy, a minimum of Jesus' parables and a resurrection scene without sight or sound of the risen Jesus have tempted readers to shortchange Mark's Gospel. Thanks to the insightful analysis and inspiring reflections of Marie Noonan Sabin, anyone studying this premier Gospel with her guidance will recognize the genius of the original author. Sabin asserts that Mark's Gospel is not an eyewitness account or a work of biography or history. She writes, "What Mark gives us is far richer. He interprets Jesus in the light of the Hebrew Bible, showing Jesus to be not only a teacher of Wisdom but Wisdom itself, calling his followers to an unconventional wisdom, a way of living (and a way of dying) that he himself exemplifies." The cover of this commentary from The Saint John's Bible highlights Sabin's thesis that the transfiguration of Jesus is pivotal to the Gospel: "The scene [9:2-8] overshadows both parts of the Gospel, emphasizing God's creative, transforming, transfiguring power to restore life." Sabin gives special attention to Mark's key words and phrases (e.g., "release," "rise up" or "be raised," "straightway," and "ecstasy") and his pattern of twos and threes. Especially helpful are the summaries at the end of each chapter. Here is a commentary that will restore Mark's prime place among the other two Synoptic Gospels.

New Collegeville Bible Commentary
The Gospel According to Mark
Volume 2

The absence of stories of Jesus' birth and infancy, a minimum of Jesus' parables and a resurrection scene without sight or sound of the risen Jesus have tempted readers to shortchange Mark's Gospel. Thanks to the insightful analysis and inspiring reflections of Marie Noonan Sabin, anyone studying this premier Gospel with her guidance will recognize the genius of the original author.

Sabin asserts that Mark's Gospel is not an eyewitness account or a work of biography or history. She writes, What Mark gives us is far richer. He interprets Jesus in the light of the Hebrew Bible, showing Jesus to be not only a teacher of Wisdom but Wisdom itself, calling his followers to an unconventional wisdom, a way of living (and a way of dying) that he himself exemplifies."

The cover of this commentary from The Saint John's Bible highlights Sabin's thesis that the transfiguration of Jesus is pivotal to the Gospel: "The scene 9:2-8]overshadows both parts of the Gospel, emphasizing God's creative, transforming, transfiguring power to restore life."

Sabin gives special attention to Mark's key words and phrases (e.g., "release," "rise up" or "be raised," "straightway," and "ecstasy") and his pattern of twos and threes. Especially helpful are the summaries at the end of each chapter. Here is a commentary that will restore Mark's prime place among the other two Synoptic Gospels.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
New Appreciation for Familiar Bible Stories   May 30, 2006
This work is the second volume of The New Collegeville Bible Study New Testament series, known for its high quality scholarship in a format and style that appeal to those new and experienced in scripture study. It contains a number of built-in study aids including layout, which divides each page into two sections, one for the reading and the other for the reflection. Bold face headings are used throughout the text, and a summary appears at the end of each chapter. An index of citations from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and maps of Jerusalem and Palestine at the time of Jesus are included.

In her introduction, Sabin addresses such issues as authorship of the Gospel of Mark, its intended audience, date and historical setting, genre, key words, and patterns and design within the text. For example, in her reflection and analysis on Mark 8, Sabin highlights the author's reliance on a pattern of doublets. In Chapter 8, as in Chapter 6, Jesus takes pity on a large crowd of followers who have nothing to eat. In Chapter 6, 5000 are fed from five loaves and two fish; in Chapter 8, 4000 Pharisees, who demanded a sign from heaven, are fed from seven loaves and a few fish. Sabin explains that many scholars believe the first feeding suggests God's raining down manna on the chosen people, and the second, the Eucharist. She goes into detail about the reasoning behind these scholarly conclusions then continues by pointing out the "double failure to understand." Not only the Pharisees, but also the disciples miss the point of the miracle.

This short sample is typical of Sabin's ability to bring readers along, leading us to a fuller understanding and appreciation of familiar bible stories and connecting them to one another and to the Old Testament.
