This new translation of the Gospel of Mark reveals startling nuances and idiosyncracies in the original Greek text that have traditionally been camoflauged by English translations. Dr. Michael Pakaluk, who previously translated Artistotle's Nichomachean Ethics for Oxford, presents his new translation alongside a fascinating commentary that draws forth new meaning and context about the Gospel, which is long understood to be Mark's retelling of what St. Peter told him first-hand.
