Therefore, receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us hold fast to the grace, by which we serve God, pleasing him with reverence and godly fear. (Hebrews 12:28)

The gospel of Mark speaks of the Son of God who will soon return and manifest an incorruptible kingdom that differs greatly from the kingdoms of men. When Jesus said that his kingdom is not of this world, some were very disillusioned. They did not understand that Jesus came to announce a very different kingdom, which he started by planting an incorruptible word (for he is the living Word of God). Over the long history of the church, many have made and are still making tragic mistakes as they attempt to take over the corrupt kingdoms of this world in the name of God.

Jesus was ordained by God and approved by God. He had no human credentials, no certificates from Herod or the Sanhedrin or the high priest, and he gave no written diplomas to his apostles. At the Last Supper, Jesus said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receives whomsoever I send receives me, and he that receives me receives him that sent me (John 13:20).

    The book The Gospel of Jesus Christ, Whosoever Will Come After Me by Russell M. Stendal, is a study done on the Gospel of Mark. In this powerful book the reader will find many unexpected things. As I began reading it, I was expecting the author to expound on each verse (which he does) and give a commentary (which he also does). I wasn’t expecting anything more. I assumed it would be the equivalent of one of my seminary studies but as I read, I found so much more. The author makes a point of giving key truths, Biblical history, Greek word studies, tips on righteous living, and an introduction to many Jewish customs. I learned so many new and exciting things as I read.

    Mr. Stendal’s writing is descriptive and easy to read. The reader will find he/she is being transported back in time. An example of the writer’s ability to do this can be found in Chapter 8 of the book. This title is called “Thou Art the Christ” and focuses on Mark chapter 8. You may have heard about the blind man who had his sight restored by Jesus. This man had been blind from birth. He had heard about Jesus healing others and he wanted to be healed. His desire to regain his sight led him to walk forward with courage to approach Jesus. Jesus did not turn him away but took him by the hand, led him out of town, spat in his eyes and healed him.

    As you read the account offered by Mr. Stendal, you’ll gain a new perspective. Let me share an overview from one of Mr. Stendal’s chapters, Mark 8: Mr. Stendal quotes the verses from Mark chapter 8. He begins in verse 22 and for this account, goes on to verse 26. Mr. Stendal gives background information on the city of Bethsaida. As he sets the scene, he says: “Bethsaida was a religious city whose inhabitants were not interested in giving God the glory for what Jesus was saying and doing…” Then he goes on to describe the healing event. “Jesus personally took him by the hand and led him out of the city in order to restore his sight, which he did in two stages. Unconventional as always, Jesus began by spitting into the man’s eyes. That is hardly the sort of medical therapy that any of us would volunteer for, and among the Jews in particular, this was a great offense, as it was considered to render unclean the person who had been spat on. Even viewed from a spiritual perspective, it could be a very traumatic experience for any self-righteous religious person if Jesus were to ‘spit in their eye’ and demonstrate that their entire world view is unclean. The blind man, however felt nothing but gratitude, for after that first touch from Jesus, his vision began to return and he saw men who walked as trees.” Mr. Stendal goes on to share relevant facts for today, “When Jesus first opens the eyes of those who are spiritually blind, the same thing tends to happen, inasmuch as the first reaction of many is to elevate man (to see men as tall as trees) and look up to those who are gifted and in ministry. It took a second touch from the Master to complete the healing to the point where the man was whole and could see everyone, far away and clearly. So, too, with fully recovering our spiritual sight.”

    The clear and concise writings of Mr. Stendal will provide an enjoyable and informative experience for the reader. His analytical thinking process provides the reader with definitive answers to questions they may have as they try to read and understand the book of Mark. At the end of each chapter, the author offers up prayer for the reader.

    I found this book to be delightful. It was filled with so much information, I felt like I needed to read it a second time to glean more. Mr. Stendal’s exposition of the chapters found in the book of Mark are well done and it is evident he has done much research to provide his text.

    I would like to thank Aneko Press for allowing me the opportunity to read and review this book. I would like to give it a 5 star recommendation. I was not encouraged to give a positive review but it is my honor to do so. For those wishing to increase their biblical knowledge, this book is a must.
