Ships in 3-5 business days
The Gospel of Mark is one of the most influential writings in all of human history, and one of the most seemingly enigmatic as well. This book takes an in-depth look at the symbolism and scriptural references in the Gospel of Mark in order to explain how and why this enigmatic work was written.
This is an excellent book for both Christians and non-Christians, laymen and scholars, as it is written in an easy to read accessible style, but takes a very detailed and critical look at the texts.
The ultimate conclusion is that the Gospel of Mark was written as an allegorical story in reaction to the destruction of Judea in 70 CE, the intention of which was to portray the Judean Jews as having brought the destruction upon themselves.
