Item description for Jesus and the Last Days: The Interpretation of the Olivet Discourse by George R. Beasley-Murray...
Overview This is a priceless resource of the collection of biblical interpretations over time on eschatological matters concerning Christ. Focusing mainly on Mark 13, George R. Beasley-Murray lays out the conflicting interpretations and arguments of scholars over time. Beasley-Murray lays out the view and follows it by each scholar who supports that view and briefly explains their position. At the end of the book Beasley-Murray adds his own personal commentary on Mark 13 and what he understands about the last days.
George R. Beasley-Murray (1916-2000) served as Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Southern Baptist Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky, and was a former Principal of Spurgeon's College, London. He is well known for his highly respected commentary, The Book of Revelation (New Century Commentary Series).
Publishers Description Anyone wrestling with Jesus' understanding of the last days must begin by braving the tempest of controversy surrounding the interpretation of Mark 13-a passage on which it seems virtually every NT scholar of the last century has felt compelled to comment. From Strauss to Schniewind, Perrin to Drewermann, rabbit trails to roadways, Beasley-Murray charts the complex and sometimes confusing paths of interpretation. Obviously, any interpreter wishing to begin at ground-zero must take seriously the forces that have shaped the modern understanding of Jesus' words concerning the End. This study culminates nearly 40 years of research, for Beasley-Murray's passion for Mark 13 began in 1954 with the release of Jesus and the Future; the present volume is a completely revised and expanded edition of the former work, whose longevity as a centerpiece in discussions on Mark 13 warranted its revision and expansion.
