The Theology of the Gospel of Mark This book presents the reader with a comprehensive viewof the theology underlying the ®rst narrative account of the life of Jesus. In chapter one Dr Telford introduces thebackground of the text and its general message, attempt-ing brie¯y to place the Gospel (and therefore its theology)in its historical setting. In the second chapter, he describesand analyses the Gospel's theology, again from an histor-ical perspective and with particular regard to its originalcontext. In the third chapter, Telford goes on to examinethe Gospel in relation to other relevant writings of theNew Testament. Brie¯y reviewing this larger corpus andhighlighting parallels and contrasts, where appropriate, heseeks to locate the Gospel's theology in its wider canonicalcontext. The fourth and ®nal chapter ranges even furthera®eld, commenting on the Gospel's history of interpret-ation and on its signi®cance in the contemporary context.

General Editor: James D. G. Dunn,Lightfoot Professor of Divinity, University of DurhamThis series sets out to provide a programmatic survey of the individualwritings of the New Testament. It aims to remedy the de®ciency of available published material which concentrates on the New Testa-ment writers' theological concerns. New Testament specialists herewrite at greater length than is usually possible in the introduction tocommentaries or as part of other New Testament theologies, andexplore the theological themes and issues of their chosen bookswithout being tied to a commentary format, or to a thematic structureprovided from elsewhere. When complete, the series will cover all theNew Testament writings, and will thus provide an attractive, andtimely, range of texts around which courses can be developed.Titles published in the series
