This review is from: Isaiah's New Exodus in Mark (Biblical Studies Library) (Paperback)
The book helps explain difficult problems in the Gospel of Mark through an Isanic framework. Watts book is significant because it comes to the important conclusion that the gospels, especially the Gospel of Mark, needs to be seen from an OT perspective and not from a Hellenistic perspective. After reading Joel Marcus' book, "The Way of the Lord," I would have to say that it is by far the superior of the two. Marcus deals succiently with the material and deals with more issues that Watts does.
