Publisher's Summary

Mark is a Jew writing for a predominantly Gentile audience in Rome. Written during a period of intense persecution under the Roman emperor Nero in 64-68 B.C., Mark offers an urgent message for a community in crisis. With its fast start (“Beginning the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Son of God... as it is written in Isaiah the prophet”), Mark hits the ground running, and he doesn’t slow down until the final episode at the end, in which the women who see Jesus’ empty tomb say nothing, for they were terrified." Mark’s Gospel is a clarion call to action. Master story teller, Dr. Bill Creasy, sounds the trumpet!


Audible Editor Reviews

Mark writes the gospel of Mark to the Roman elites during a time of intense Christian persecution. In a concise outline, he tells the story of Jesus, as an adult through to his death, as a call to action. Dr. Bill Creasy partners with Logos Bible Institute to present this series of lectures on the Bible. With years of experience as a professor, Dr. Creasy feels at home in front of a group. He takes a casual tone and adds his own modern analogies to make this lesson fun. You don't need to be a bible scholar to enjoy this smart series; the lectures are approachable for everyone.

Excellent Bible Study

I also posted this on This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.

Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.

As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.

According to the syllabus I received from Dr. Creasy (he sometimes deviates from this in class), Mark is the fifth in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Leviticus and followed by Numbers. Mark has 16 chapters, and the study is comprised of 14 lessons. Total time - 10 hours, 17 minutes.
