Description

Mark’s fast-paced, action-packed Gospel portrays Jesus in a way that is stunningly compelling—and deeply challenging too.

Join Bible teacher Jason Meyer as he unpacks Mark verse by verse. He unveils how the book fits together, marvels at important details, and highlights key themes. Most of all, he helps you to turn your eyes to Jesus—his power, his wisdom, and his compassionate heart.

This accessible, absorbing expository guide is more applied than a typical commentary, making it a great resource for personal devotion, as well as useful for leading small-group studies or for sermon preparation. Contains foreword by Thomas R. Schreiner.

There is an accompanying Good Book Guide available to purchase for small-group Bible studies.

“A goldmine of deep insights into Mark's Gospel!”

The aim of the “God’s Word For You” series is to provide a commentary guide which gets right to the heart of the book of the Bible and applies its truth to the heart of the reader.

The latest release in the series is a guide and walkthrough Mark’s Gospel by Jason Meyer, who not only keeps to the remit of getting to the heart of the biblical text but he also frequently ties the Gospel narrative in Mark back to the Old Testament and helps the reader to see the bigger picture of salvation.

Using simple, everyday examples Jason Meyer is very effective in explaining deeper and more complex biblical themes in connecting how The Lord Jesus fulfils God’s law and reverses the sin of the first man Adam, whilst also bringing deeper insights that are so often missed. One example of this is how The Lord Jesus slept during the storm (in Mark 4) because like King David (in Psalm 3) His Father sustains Him. Another helpful insight was how the partial healing of the blind man in Mark 8 was in fact a parable of the partial spiritual blindness of the disciples! In the passion narrative, Meyer also explains how the freeing of Barabbas is a picture of substitutionary atonement, as the guilty man walks free and the sinless Son of God takes the punishment instead.

The book itself is divided up into 14 different chapters - each picking up on a separate biblical theme, which really helps in focusing the reader on the bigger picture of what is happening in that section of the Gospel of Mark. Each chapter is then divided up into different parts, with helpful section headings and helpful questions for reflection at the end of each section.

In conclusion, “Mark for You” is an absolute goldmine of illustrations, commentary and fresh insights that this short review cannot do justice, I highly commend it as a truly excellent resource!

“Compelling and Compassionate”

What is the message of the Gospel of Mark? In Mark For You, Jason Meyer delivers his expository Bible-study guide to Mark—a book that portrays Jesus in a stunningly compelling way.

Face-Paced and Action Packed

In nearly 300 pages, Meyer makes the most of his words and sticks to the text. Highlighting the frequency of the word “immediately” in Mark’s Gospel, Meyer’s commentary is equally fast-paced and action packed.

The Priority of Preaching

For example, Meyer gives us insight into the ancient world. Usually, the disciple would ask the teacher to train him. In Jesus’ case, he commands his disciples to follow him. This is shocking, and Mark wants us to feel the surprise. Jesus is not like anyone else in this world. He comes with the authority of a king.

Compelling and Compassionate

The end of Mark finds Meyer tackling the second coming of Christ and a call to stay awake. Meyer is pointed and reminds us of our living hope in the resurrection of Christ. This book is accessible and clear, and an excellent entry in the God’s Word For You series. It will challenge and encourage you to turn your eyes upon Jesus.

I received a media copy of Mark For You and this is my honest review.

“A Superb Series of Entry Level Commentaries”

I've slowly been working my way through purchasing all of these "God's Word for You" commentaries as I think they are excellent entry-level commentaries for those who are leading Bible studies and preaching in the local church. While they may not go into the same level of detail about the text as some more academic commentaries, they are very strong on application and are very helpful when thinking through how to guide your listener towards living out the commands of Jesus. This commentary of Mark is an excellent addition to the series, splitting the passages well and giving you a good overview of the gospel. For the price, it is also very good value. If you haven't tried this commentary yet and are looking to lead Bible studies or similar, I would really encourage you to do so. If you're preaching a passage from Mark in the local church, perhaps buy this and something more detailed too.
