Continue your study in Mark in Dr. James W. Voelz’s second volume.

The Reign of God has come in Jesus Christ, but in hiddenness, in humility, and in lowliness. In Mark 16:8, this commentary’s proposed final verse of the original Marcian manuscript, the disciples do not yet see the glorious, risen Christ. They only have the promise of a word given to them in the verse before. This, Voelz argues, serves as a fitting conclusion to the literary and theological trajectory of Mark. The primary evidence left for the disciples in Mark is the same Word of promise given to the faithful today: Christ is risen. Your sins are forgiven. Not through signs or wonders but through meticulous translation and analysis, Voelz unpacks the richness of the Law and Gospel in Mark

Dr. Christopher W. Mitchell takes on verses 9-20 of chapter 16 in this volume, continuing Dr. Voelz’s work.
