Overview

"A work indispensable for any serious student of the Second Gospel."
—John R. Donahue, Journal of Theological Studies

"[Black] has certainly produced the most thorough study of traditions about John Mark to date. Moreover, given his judicious handling of evidence . . . it is unlikely that this study will be superseded in any foreseeable future."
—Larry W. Hurtado, Catholic Biblical Quarterly

"Black's own work reflects and expresses considerable progress in early Christian studies. It is an excellent piece of work."
—Robert M. Grant, Journal of Religion

"This is a stimulating, well-constructed, and measured book, of breadth and insightfulness. . . . I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in either New Testament or patristic studies. It is a model of its kind."
—J. Carelton Paget, Journal of Theological Studies
