Item description for The Gospel of Mark: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary (Socio-Rhetorical Commentary) by Ben Witherington...
Overview This superb commentary offers the first sustained attempt to read the Gospel of Mark both as an ancient biography and as a form of ancient rhetoric. Leading New Testament scholar Ben Witherington applies to Mark the socio-rhetorical approach for which he is well known, opening a fresh new perspective on the earliest Gospel. Witherington's work provides us with a fascinating view of how the life and teachings of Jesus were presented to a largely non-Jewish auidence - and what this presentation of Jesus still holds for Christians today.

One of the Best on Mark Apr 4, 2007
This is the way a commentary should be done. Witherington has written a beautiful interpretation of Mark's Gospel that I found particularly helpful for preparing sermons. In my practical experience this is one of the better commentaries and belongs on every pastor's shelf. I only wish it were in hardback.
