The Gospel of Mark
by John W. Martens
The Gospel of Mark is presented as a dramatic narrative. A Gospel which is in essence a play, divine and cosmic in its implications. Martens argues that the Gospel can be divided into six Acts, each with many scenes. Each Act is at the service of Mark's overall purpose, to explain and unfold not only the identity of the Messiah, but the destiny of the Messiah and his followers, then and now.
