These days I am writing my own commentary on the gospel of Mark.
Am I finding fresh meanings in Mark? Writing something never before written?
Scholars have been conducting a weighty conversation about the NT for the past 2000 years, and I’m simply joining in the fun. It would be quite dangerous to swerve outside the lines of this tradition.
Despite drawing on professional resources for my study, Jesus cannot be circumscribed. He continues to amaze me, baffle me, and exceed (or contradict) my expectations.
He often doesn’t do what he’s “supposed” to do, which makes me think I’m missing something.
