“Dr. Lane is known in scholarly circles… (and) as joint-author… of the volume The New Testament Speaks (New York: Harper & Row, 1969). But the writing of this commentary has provided him with an opportunity to deploy his scholarly and exegetical power to its full extent” writes F. F. Bruce in the introduction.
In this commentary Mark is revealed as a theologian whose primary intention was the strengthening of the people of God in a time of fiery persecution by Nero. It begins with an introductory section discussing dating, occasion, literary style, and historical issues surrounding the gospel. The analysis is based on linguistic and historical research designed to draw out the meaning of the text.
