TableTalk Magazine on Mark

Last week I directed you to the article on the Gospel of Luke in RC Sproul's TableTalk Magazine.  In the same edition of the magazine is a good article on the Gospel of Mark written by S. M. Baugh.  The author summarized his article thus:

In conclusion, Mark provides the listener with a dynamic account of the majestic authority of Jesus in word, but especially in powerful deeds that stunned His contemporaries with their supernatural character. These acts were a demonstration that the kingdom of God had indeed drawn near with His arrival. Yet the inauguration of this kingdom was not a political revolution but the King’s own substitutionary sacrifice for His people before His resurrection and ascension to “the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven” (Mark 14:62). Mark has told this story in such a way that the attentive listener will be led to confess, along with the first disciples: “You are the Christ.”

Like the others, its a good read that sums up the material and the book quit well.
