Title:Mark: A Commentary on His Apology for the Cross
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:lv, 1069 p.
Abstract:Introduction denies any hidden or symbolic purpose to Mark, allows only for it to be an apology for the apparently shameful manner of Jesus' death; previews the progression of the narrative. At end of commentary are found comments on purpose, origin, outlining, and literary genre. Holds a conservative view in general, argues quite knowledgeably; a thorough, "hard-facts" commentary. Handles structure, details quite well, but specific information may be difficult to retrieve. Detailed comments on a pericope are followed by notes discussing scholarly views of the text's development, theology, etc. No running text, author translates as needed within body of comments. Knowledge of Hebrew and Greek assumed.

Title:John: A Commentary on the Gospel of John
Place:Philadelphia
Publisher:Fortress Press
Pages:xxx, 308 p.
Abstract:The very thorough introduction covers the Gospel in early tradition, modern criticism, the text, disorder and rearrangement, language, sources, composition, style, author, and various Christologies in the Gospel. Historical-critical approach. Favors gnostic interpretation of evangelist's theology. Excursus on the beloved disciple. 93-page bibliography. Author's translation (retranslated from German). Good treatment of themes within and between pericopes, but discourse structure not featured as such. Translators will find many details discussed, but many others passed over in favor of information of more value for homiletics. Excellent translation by Funk, clear language level and style, makes fascinating reading. Although Greek used constantly, knowledge not required. (Hermeneia). Vol.1, Chapters 1-6; Vol.2, Chapters 7-21. Translated by R. Funk
