Every serious student of the Bible desires to understand the text, discover the biblical principles, and apply the truths to his/her life. This commentary is designed to help students, pastors, and Bible teachers understand the Gospel of Mark in a simple manner. Working from the popular New International Version (NIV), the author provides helpful commentary on the text verse by verse. This verse-by-verse commentary is different from others in two respects. First, it is brief while some commentaries are unnecessarily wordy and verbose. Second, it is Pentecostal in outlook. This implies that we generally adhere to the doctrine of biblical inerrancy and adopt a literalist approach to the interpretation of the Bible. The major aim of this commentary is to expose readers to the Gospel of Mark. It is written primarily for the busy pastor, Sunday school teacher, or Christian leader who desires to learn better the Gospel of Mark. The Gospel of Mark is the shortest and simplest of the four Gospels. It gives an action-packed, authentic record of the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ. The inspired story of Mark portrays Jesus Christ as the complete and final revelation of God to His creation.
