Hans Bayer places Mark’s Gospel in its biblical context and explores the dynamic relationship between Jesus and his disciples—a process in which Jesus radically transforms them from self-dependent to God-dependent—beginning with their hearts.
Author Hans F. Bayer (Ph.D., the University of Aberdeen) is Professor of New Testament and Chair of the New Testament Department at Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri.
Endorsement Hans Bayer reads the book of Mark with the mind of a philosopher, the heart of a lover, and the humility of a disciple. His aim is to show how self-perception (both individual and corporate) and God-perception shaped by the Gospel simultaneously result in reconciled relationships and radical discipleship. Here is theology and biblical commentary at its best – rooted in powerful textual insights and rigorously applied to contemporary discipleship. The insights are profound; the grace is sweet. - Bryan Chapell
