The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Mark: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

Mark's fast-paced, powerful, and dramatic Gospel takes the reader on a breath-taking tour through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. Mark: Audio Lectures, taught by Mark Strauss, uses a narrative and theological approach to provide insight into the Evangelist's story-telling craft, theological purpose, and narrative themes.

Mark: Audio Lectures, along with accompanying book Mark from the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series, stresses both the message of Jesus as he proclaims the kingdom of God and the mission of Jesus as he suffers and dies as a ransom for human sin. Lectures examine the biblical text in its original environment, with an emphasis on practical messages and passages of great theological depth. Strauss provides interpretive insights into the background and meaning of the text, and discusses how the message of the text fits within the book itself and its broader biblical-theological context. Learners will discover Jesus's call to be his disciples and to live in obedience to his kingdom calling in their lives today.
