Publisher's Summary

Timothy Carmody takes us on an in-depth journey into the world of the Gospel of St. Mark. His unique approach in utilizing both narrative and literary criticism, while stressing the need for a critical historical perspective, enables the listener to get to the very heart of how the Gospel of Mark works in conveying his message and answering the question "What is actually going on in the text?"

The vast majority of biblical scholars consider Mark the earliest and oldest of the Synoptic Gospels written. Carmody exposes the genius and mastermind of St. Mark's gift as a sacred author. He gets to the heart of St. Mark's intent and explains just what is going on in his gospel. Carmody makes it possible for his listeners to enjoy the perfect opportunity to delve deeper into the multi-faceted components of the gospel itself, while investigating the primary motif of Jesus' "Messianic Secret", in which he commanded his followers to silence about his messianic mission. The theme of the "Failure of Discipleship", where his disciples over and over again fail to comprehend the teachings of their master, is also a major component of Carmody's presentation. This powerful, yet down-to-earth approach certainly leaves the listener with a wealth of information on St. Mark's Gospel, along with the sacred author's pure intention to announce the life and teachings of Jesus Christ from the beginning of his public ministry. This audio will appeal to all who are interested in biblical studies, from the beginner to the most learned.
