RELATED TITLES UNIQUE SELLING POINTS | 34 | ACADEMIC Mark Through Old Testament Eyes A Background and Application Commentary Andrew T. Le Peau THROUGH OLD TESTAMENT EYES Through Old Testament Eyes is a new kind of commentary series that opens the New Testament writings in greater depth to anyone committed to understanding or teaching Scripture. In this inaugural volume, the richness of Old Testament allusions and background in Mark clarifies puzzling passages and explains others in fresh ways. The exodus motif structures Mark. Mark also presents Jesus as the true temple of God in contrast to the existing temple, which has been corrupted. These important themes are hidden to modern eyes without the insight of an Old Testament perspective, and this commentary builds on that insight to emphasize how the gospel applies to the daily lives of Christians today. “A groundbreaking, genial achievement—exceptional and virtually unique! Of its many admirable features three shine brightly: its user-friendly teaching style laced with charts and summaries; its discovery-edge in identifying copiously Old Testament contexts for specific texts, verses, and phrases; and its attention to narrative structure and themes. A winner for both classroom and church group study. Though long a Markan scholar and author, I here found new treasures. Read and enjoy!” —Willard Swartley, professor emeritus of New Testament, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary Andrew T. Le Peau was the longtime associate publisher for editorial at InterVarsity Press and taught the gospel of Mark for over a decade at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. He is also the author of Paths of Leadership and coauthor of Heart, Soul, Mind, Strength. • Read Mark with the under- standing of the Old Testament that the early church had • First book in a promising, accessible commentary series • Insightful, devotional, and practical applications Jesus the Messiah 978-0-8254-2109-9 • $ 36.99 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible 978-0-8254-3498-3 • $ 21.99 978-0-8254-4411-1 • $28.99 Paperback • 6 x 9 • 384 pages Biblical Commentary / New Testament Kregel Academic • Rights: World September 26, 2017 ISBN 978-0-8254-4411-1 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 4 1 1 1
