The Turning Point In The Gospel Of Mark from the Author: Gregg S. Morrison. Based on linguistic and thematic links in the narrative, 'The Turning Point in the Gospel of Mark' argues that the twin pericopae of PeterÂ’s confession (8:27-38) and the Transfiguration (9:2-13) together function as the turning point of the Gospel and serve in a Janus like manner enabling the reader to see the authorÂ’s main focus: the identity of Jesus and the significance of that reality for his disciples. PeterÂ’s confession of Jesus as Messiah faces backward toward the Prologue (1:1-13) and functions as a mid-course conclusion. The declaration by God on the mountain faces forward and foreshadows the end-course conclusion (14:61-62; 15:39; Son of God). Jesus, in response, teaches that the Son of Man must suffer and die before being raised from the dead (8:31). Christologically, the images of Messiah, Son of Man, and Son of God converge and present Jesus, the crucified, as king, ushering in the kingdom of God in power (9:1 acting as the key swivel between the twin pericopae). When one is confronted with this Jesus, though there remains something elusive about him and the kingdom of God in the narrative, the only wise decision (after calculating the costs, 8:34-38) is to follow.

Jesus The Divine Bridegroom In Mark 2 18 22 from the Author: Tait Michael. This book examines the pericope Mark 2:18-22 with special reference to the Christological implications, in the final form of Marks text, of Jesus reference to himself as Bridegroom. After introductory material, the context of the pericope is examined from a literary and theological standpoint, concluding that it occupies a position of both structural significance and theological importance. The background to the nuptial imagery used by Jesus/Mark is looked at in the Old Testament and other Jewish literature, where the figure is seen to be used exclusively of Yahweh, never of the Messiah, usually with a hint of disruption. A survey of the New Testament, apart from Mark, reveals that the Bridegroom image has been transferred to Jesus, not with a suggestion that it is part of his Messianic identity but rather in contexts of the highest Christology. Against all this background, a detailed exegesis of the pericope, concludes that Mark too presents his readers with a divine figure, though one who is destined to be taken away. Michael Tait gained his first doctorate at the University of Oxford in 1975 on the history of the Brigittines of Syon Abbey. After a career in schoolteaching, for thirteen years of which he was a headmaster, he completed his SSL in 2005 and his doctorate in biblical studies at the University of Manchester in 2008.

On the basis of the latest methods in New Testament scholarship, the battle over Yes and No to this question is waged within these pages. In the end, no agreement is reached, but the basic issues and their impact on studying epistolary and narrative literature in 1st-century Christianity stand out with much greater clarity than before.

The Gospel Of Mark from the Author: John P. Keenan. John Keenan's 'The Gospel of Mark' is a radically new reading of this most intriguing of the Synoptic gospels - a remarkable feat in the face of the explosion of Markan scholarship over the last twenty years. Keenan accomplishes this by approaching Mark as no other scholar has done: through the lens of Mahayana-Buddhist philosophy. This view stresses the emptying of all preconceived notions of how to begin reading as well as reclamation of such notions in terms of dependent co-arising and Jesus' assault on the validity of conventional religiosity. 'The Gospel of Mark' displays an alternative hermeneutical procedure, one generated by the Mahayana understanding of the function of text and doctrine, and informed by Mahayana philosophy. Part One of 'The Gospel of Mark' provides an overview of different interpretive techniques in Markan scholarship. It describes and argues for the validity of a Buddhist approach to this charter document of the Christian Gospel. Here the author demonstrates a profound grasp not only of scriptural scholarship but of Mahayana philosophy. Keenan discusses themes such as Mark's elliptical style and the journeying that provides the impetus for the narrative, and explores them through the lens of emptiness and dependent co-arising which are the focal points of a Mahayana reading. In Part Two Keenan gives the reader truly fresh insights into the paradoxical world of Mark's Jesus. Through a Buddhist lens, the text offers startling and new perspectives on Jesus himself, the experience of the Kingdom, miracle stories and parables, the passion and death, the resurrection and return.

The Military Dimension Mark Ii from the Author: David Drake. WELCOME TO THE WAR ZONE When they say that war changes a man, they're being euphemistic. War makes a man insane by civilian standards. When the man comes back, he may return to civilian norms again. After a while. I'm not proud of many of the things that happened in Nam. I'm not proud of some of the things I did myself. But the men I served with were, for the most part, doing the best job they could with the cards they'd been dealt. I'm proud of them, and I'm proud to have been among them. Anybody's got a right to criticize the things that happened. But don't criticize the men who did them unless you've been in their shoes. Ever since I came back, the object of my military fiction has been to put somebody as normal as you, or as I was, into a war zone. And I hope to God neither you nor your son ever has an opportunity to compare my fiction with the real thing. A shorter edition of this book was published under the title The Military Dimension. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Mark S Memory Resources And The Controversy Stories Mark 2 1 3 6 from the Author: Yoon-Man Park. Drawing on frame theory from cogntive science, this book shows that as a product of oral-aural cultures the Gospel of Mark is basically an 'background knowledge'-based story; and hence it can be only properly understood by the help of frames which the speaker and audience shared.
