Mark: An Introduction and Study Guide: Shaping the Life and Legacy of Jesus
This Guide reads the Gospel of Mark as a 1st-century CE story about Jesus, for his followers, and against tyranny or the abusive use of power. First, the book shows students how the Gospel uses the form of a traditional laudatory biography (a ‘Life’) to reshape the memory of the shame-ridden trials and suffering of Jesus. Such a biography portrayed Jesus’ descent (as a son of God), his deeds, and his heroic death, dispelling any notion that the teacher Jesus was a charlatan or huckster. Second, Smith demonstrates how the Gospel devotes a great deal of space to Jesus’ training of his disciples - as he calls, commissions, and corrects them in preparation for the difficult moments of their journey. Third, Smith highlights the Gospel’s special characterizations of Jesus - as a prophetic envoy, a man of authority, and a philosophical hero - contrasting Jesus’ use of power with the abusive use of power by Rome’s representatives (Herod Antipas and Pilate).
Throughout history, teachers have occupied a pivotal place. This work is a comparative study of two teachers. This book has taken its point of departure from the book, 'Jesus as a Teacher' authored by Professor.J.T.Dillon of the University of California at Riverside, USA. The book compares in a descriptive way, Sri Ramanuja's teachings to Jesus. Several aspects of their teachings such as context, writings, disciples and impact of teachings have been compared. This book raises and answers several vital questions such as “Who were Sri Ramanuja and Jesus?”, “What did they teach and why?”, “Where and when or in what circumstances did Sri Ramanuja and Jesus teach?”, “Whom did Sri Ramanuja and Jesus teach?”, “How did Sri Ramanuja and Jesus carry out their teaching?”, “How did Sri Ramanuja and Jesus use language to teach?”, “Who learned what from their teaching?”, “How well did they teach?”, “How good a teacher was each of them?”. The different aspects of the teaching have been comprehensively analyzed and summarized as part of this book.

Since accepted Jesus Christ as my savior; I decided to try and base my life on his principles. Doing so , I have seen tremendous changes in my life shaping my character overtime. Who I am today is the result of this acceptance of Jesus and His changes in me. Becoming who you wants to be depend on who God wants you to become. My conviction is that our achievements in our various carriers are made possible by God. However, we often attribute them solely to our own glory rather than glorifying the owner of glory- Jesus Christ. Clearly, any step of your life was made possible by God and you only serve as raw material to make it happen. God knows himself and confidently the reason why you have been created. Consistent with Rick Warren ‘we have been created for God’s reason’. We need only to seize and live accordingly to this reason. Part of this reason is to glorify lord and proclaim his kingdom worldwide. I have seen my relationship with God improving over time and have seen his hand in my education as well as in my professional carrier. In our life we need to set some guiding principles that are grounded on Jesus in order to achieve our plans. God is all in all.
