In this book the author explores how contexts determine the meaning of embedded scripture texts in the Gospel of Mark. Many historical critics base their readings on a context that is external to MarkAes story world, be it a reconstructed socio-religious setting of the evangelist, a Jewish exegetical tradition or some earlier stage in the development of the gospel. What is common to these readings is the neglect for the context of the story world- the very context in which scripture quotations and allusions are embedded. The author proposes a method of reading these embedded texts that is sensitive to the story world, though not at the expense of the historical setting in which the gospel was written. Jesus' announcement in 1:15 concerning the kingdom of God serves as the point of entrance into Mark's story world.

'of most use to those who have completed several years' training in biblical studies and the biblical languages'--Alistair I Wilson "Themelios "
"I would recommend this book for a graduate level seminar in Mark of in biblical criticism or for a similar context. The author's high view of Scripture also commends his work."" -Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society"
