Description

The Gospel of Mark portrays Jesus making impossible demands on his disciples. They must follow him even if it costs them their lives. And, unsurprisingly, this proves to be impossible for them to do. They fail drastically in Mark's narrative and run from the scene as Jesus is arrested. Peter had been determined to stay by him unto death, but even he was not able to admit to knowing Jesus at that crucial moment. The strange thing is that Jesus made it clear that it is impossible to enter the Kingdom of God without this sort of radical discipleship. In this narrative study of salvation in the Gospel of Mark, this conundrum is studied closely with surprising results. An investigation of various socio-historical aspects of Mark's background elucidate the connection that Mark makes between the death of Jesus and the following of the disciples. And a study of Mark's narrative as a whole shows that Mark provides hope for those without courage to follow. If they continue to look and listen carefully, the mystery will be unveiled to them. ""In this deceptively penetrating narrative reading of Mark, Markusse-Overduin makes convincing connections between participation in the suffering of the Son of Man and Mark's path of salvation. Amongst her many contributions is the narratival demonstration that through the death of Jesus, the obedience-enabling Spirit makes following Jesus in cross-bearing discipleship possible. An excellent, theological reading of Mark based on creative narrative rereading."" --Kent Brower, Nazarene Theological College This book is based on Gabi Markusse's PhD thesis completed at the University of Manchester in 2013.
