The Oxford Bible Commentary Line-by-line commentary for the New Revised Standard Version Bible.

Date.

The date of the gospel is also uncertain. The traditional view is, as we have seen, that Mark dates from the 60s. Much depends on the interpretation of ch. 13 , where Mark's Jesus looks into the future to what is to come, though for Mark no doubt some of what is predicted has already happened. The language there is at times cryptic, and perhaps deliberately so. The view adopted in this commentary is that Mark is looking back to the fall of Jerusalem in 70 CE as an event in his past: hence Mark is to be dated after 70 CE (though probably not long after). For discussion of this, see MK 13, especially 13:14–20 .
