"The Gospel of Mark, addressed to an early Christian community perplexed by failure and suffering, presents Jesus as suffering Messiah and Son of God. Recognizing that failure and suffering continue to perplex Christians today, Francis Moloney marries the rich contributions of traditional historical scholarship with the contemporary approach to the gospels as narrative to bring the Gospel's story to life for contemporary readers."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
