Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel of Mark (The Scholars Bible, Vol. 1)?
Scholars only? Nov 14, 2007
This is the Scholars Bible translation of the Gospel of Mark, and it is well done. The commentary and apparatus comments are VOLUMINOUS, however, so I'd caution you that this book is for serious Bible study only. I'm not particularly happy with the translation used, but I suppose that's because we all have our favorites, and this one doesn't "sing" very well for me. What it probably is, is a much more accurate translation of the text. Be prepared to be completely immersed in the subject with this book, but be aware that it's not suitable for a casual bible study group; it's for veteran theology buffs.
Insightful and Revealing May 2, 2000
Dr. Daryl Schmidt's translation of the Gospel of Mark will be an eye-opener for a person of any background. This Scholar's Bible translation begins with an extensive introduction including conclusions by the Jesus Seminar about the identity of Mark's author and the cultural atmosphere of Mark's "war-time gospel." Then with the inclusion of the original Greek text on each facing page, and extensive foot notes at the bottom of each explaining variances from traditional translations of Mark, Schmidt allows us to see for ourselves how differences in translation may radically shape the conclusions we reach from this first extant record of the historical Jesus. Be warned; careful reading of this Gospel of Mark is likely to cause an intellectual inquiry into the nature of biblical revelation...and I have concluded that with Schmidt the reader is in good hands to conduct it. Schmidt writes as he teaches: lucidly, insightfully, and with evident passion for his field. This book merits taking some time to discover Mark all over again.
