This engaging study examines the considerable attention Mark's
Gospel gives to Jesus' confrontation with temptation, not only
during his time in the wilderness but throughout the whole course
of his earthly life and ministry. Building on solid biblical
exegesis and practical exposition, Garrett discusses the ancient
traditions related to the theme of testing/temptation and then
explores Jesus' own experiences with temptation in Mark. In the
course of her work, Garrett reads key passages of Mark in light of
first-century Jewish and Christian cultural conventions about the
testing or tempting of the righteous. This background material
affords a fresh perspective on Mark's views concerning such
fundamental issues as the person and work of Jesus, the church, the
twelve disciples, and the nature of Christian discipleship.
