George Alexander Chadwick graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, in 1862 and was ordained in 1863. Chadwick also published Christ Bearing Witness to Himself, given as the Donelian Lectures for 1879, As One Who Serves, and My Emotional Life (1883).

Our excerpts are taken from the following book: G. A. Chadwick, The Gospel According to St. Mark, 4th ed. (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1891).

This commentary on Mark is scholarly yet warm and full of extraordinary insights on this gospel that make it come alive for the reader, something often lacking in modern scholarly commentaries.

However, Chadwick's sentence structure is often difficult to follow by the modern reader. Therefore, we offer two versions for each of the excerpts we've selected from the commentary. One version is reproduced with a minimum of rephrasing by Carol Morgan. However, for scholarly citation, we also have included the original text from Chadwick's commentary.
