The Temptation and the Passion : the Markan soteriology by Ernest Best( Book )

38 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this book is to illuminate the manner in which Mark understood Jesus' death. That death forms the climax of the Gospel, and is all-important for the evangelist. Since it is central to every form of Christianity, much has already been written on the significance Jesus' death had for Mark. Most previous studies, like the first edition of this book, used redaction criticism to interpret Mark's viewpoint from the alterations he made to the form of the Passion narrative as he had received it from tradition. More recently the Gospels have been examined as continuous stories, and the author adopts this approach in the additional material of his new edition. By examining the general sweep of the narrative, and in particular of its last chapters, Professor Best attempts to show how Mark saw Jesus' death as both an atonement for sin and as creative of the new community of the Church

1 Peter by Ernest Best( Book )

33 editions published between 1971 and 1987 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The First Letter of Peter is important not only for its own sake but also for the light it throws on the life of the early Church. Its author, probably not the Apostle Peter, belonged to the central stream of early Christianity and used much of the common tradition; the Churches to which he wrote stood under the threat of persecution. The present commentary not only deals with the customary difficult question of authorship and date, but by a careful exegesis seeks to bring out the characteristic contribution of the Letter to Christian thought, to draw attention to the material common to the early Christian tradition, and to bring out what can be learned of the early Church from the Letter

A critical and exegetical commentary on Ephesians by Ernest Best( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary series has held a special place among works on the Bible. It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis - linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological-with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series. No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought. The first paperback editions to be published cover the heart of the New Testament, providing a wealth of information and research in accessible and attractive format."--Bloomsbury Publishing
