Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture, New Testament II: by Thomas C. Oden

By Thomas C. Oden

A Christianity at the present time 1999 publication of the yr! The early church valued the Gospel of Mark for its upkeep of the apostolic voice and gospel narrative of Peter. but the early church fathers very hardly ever produced sustained statement on Mark. This brisk-paced and powerful little Gospel, quite a bit loved by means of smooth readers, was once overshadowed within the minds of the fathers by means of the magisterial Gospels of Matthew and John. yet now with the help of laptop searches, an abundance of remark has been found to be embedded and interleaved amidst the textual information of patristic homilies, apologies, letters, commentaries, theological treatises and hymnic verses. during this old Christian remark on Mark, the insights of Augustine of Hippo and Clement of Alexandria, Ephrem the Syrian and Cyril of Jerusalem take part a polyphony of interpretive voices of the jap and Western church from the second one century to the 7th. St. Mark's Gospel monitors the evocative energy of its tale, parables and keenness because it ignites a super show of theological perception and pastoral knowledge. the traditional Christian remark on Mark (now in its moment variation) opens up a long-forgotten passage during the arid and precipitous slopes of post-Enlightenment serious interpretation and bears us alongside to a fertile valley basking within the sunshine of theological and non secular interpretation. In those pages we input the interpretive global that lengthy nurtured the good premodern pastors, theologians and saints of the church.
