Journey with Jesus through the Message of Mark is an insightful and engaging survey of Mark's Gospel, exploring each major section of the text along with the main themes. It is a work that can be enjoyed by laypersons, as well as pastors and teachers. Pastors will find the abundant use of illustrations to be helpful in preparing their own messages and as such, it will find a welcome place in the preacher's library. Simply, powerfully, with high precision, and exegetical accuracy, Kieran Beville masterfully brings us on a life-transforming journey. Readers will be both inspired and challenged as they hear the words of Jesus speaking afresh from the page of Scripture and experience the ministry of Jesus in a spiritually captivating way. The author has a pastor's heart, a theologian's mind, and a writer's gift. His style is gripping, as he beautifully explains and illustrates Mark's Gospel. Kieran Beville has done a great service to the church, and especially to true believers, who desire to grow in grace, increase in their knowledge of truth , and experience the intimacy, joy, and undeserved and unspeakable privilege of walking, as disciples, with Jesus.
This book is ideal as a study companion for Mark’s Gospel. One can read a section of the gospel and then read the corresponding section to receive a fresh viewpoint and a practical application. The author often helpfully refers to background and historical information from the Ancient Middle-East that would not otherwise be readily understood by modern western readers. Many times, there will be cross-references to other passages of Scripture, thereby connecting Mark’s writing with other important passages from the Bible. Other times the author provides insights from current events, history, literature, church life, or his rich personal experience. These draw out the ongoing relevance of the Gospel of Mark. Journey with Jesus is coordinated with the chapters of Mark. Each section is divided appropriately with the modern scholarly understanding of the Gospel. The volume concludes with helpful essays on “Who Killed Jesus?”, “Judas Iscariot” and “Pontius Pilate.”
