The Way of the Lord:
Christological Exegesis of the Old Testament in the Gospel of Mark
by Joel Marcus
List Price: $26.00

Sigler Price: $14.00 

Cloth - 240 pp
ISBN 0-8042-0250-8
Westminster/John Knox Press


This scholarly work looks at the way the author of the Gospel of Mark uses the Old Testament to  delineate the identity of Jesus.  It includes a review of the Markan narratives about Jesus'  baptism, his transfiguration, and his suffering and death, as well as the discussion about his relation to Elijah, his identity as 'the stone which the builders rejected,' and the question of whether or not he is David's son.

Editorial Comments

The key to the theology of the New Testament is its messianic interpretation of the Old. This clearly written and well-researched monograph nor only makes its own important contribution to this topic but also offers constructive criticism of differing views.

E. Earle Ellis
Research Professor of Theology
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
Fort Worth, Texas

In this well-informed book, Marcus casts fresh light on important aspects of Mark's portrait of Jesus by examining major ways in which Mark made use of the Old Testament in sketching it. . . . Thoroughly documented and closely argued, Marcus's book is a judicious study that no one interested in Markan Christology will want to miss.

Jack Dean Kingsbury
Aubrey Lee Brooks Professor of Biblical Theology
Union Theological Seminary of Virginia, Richmond

Marcus's new study of scriptural exegesis in Mark should become the standard work in that subject.  The author balances a first-hand knowledge of ancient Jewish exegesis with mastery of the secondary literature on Mark.  The result is a book that makes an important contribution to Markan interpretation generally.

D. Moody Smith
George Washington Ivey Professor of New Testament
The Divinity School, Duke University
Durham, North Carolina

No one who reads this important study will ever again read Mark's passion narrative without hearing its complex apocalyptic echoes.  Marcus's work should begin a new chapter in the critical study of the oldest Gospel.

Richard B. Hays
Associate Professor of New Testament
