Based on Dr. Ruckman's Sunday School teaching, the work covers the textual distinctives of the Gospel of Mark, with the attacks of the textual and higher critics discussed and refuted. The doctrinal progress of the gospel message from the ministry of Christ to its proclamation in the Acts of the Apostles is traced. Roman Catholic teachings on the Passion Week and the Crucifixion are shown to be legends and myths. As in all the commentaries in this series, Dr. Ruckman, in his own signature way, makes practical applications to the life of the believer as well as as an evangelistic emphasis for the lost. 595 pages.
