Description

Students of the gospel of Mark have been convinced for some time that it is carefully structured so as to communicate the message its author intended, and a number of proposals have been advanced as to the nature of this structure. This book examines the major rhetorical strategies employed in the narrative in the hope of developing a suggestion that will gain wide acceptance and shed additional light on the message of this gospel. The study focuses on three rhetorical devices - chiasmus, orality and midrash.

Contents

The three key narrative moments; the opening section; the middle section; the closing section; the major narrative sequences; the message of Mark.
