What Jesus DID
John Mark>> assc. with Peter who had intimate knowledge of Jesus' teachings/life
-preaching by Peter shaped/formatted by MARK
Amount of other synop. gospels shared with Mark?
overlap, possiblily of 1 central document?
-oral tradition, written fragments...
*Mark as document? predates other 2
besides Jews maybe?
-Aramaic words/ Jewish customs explained
composed, Rome (67 AD), Nero
-Mark wrote to emphasize/ preface persectuion and 'suffering to recieve glory'
-Cross= human caused+DIVINE NECESSITY
emphasis on TITLE, less accounts than other gospels
silence about who he is/ what he's done
unconcerned w/ explaination
Language was 'quick'
was beginning of gosps
-J. the Baptist+Jesus, Jordan River
4. Passion Narrative
geography/ travels were highlighted
unadorned account of Jesus' ACTIONS
*think Messianic secret
Title/ first line- similar/ ties with Pentateuch
An introduction to Jesus>9 Ch. of Galilean affairs
Ends with RUMORED resurection
women told to give reports...
PASSION PREDICTIONS (by Jesus)
ending, no description of ressurected Jesus> possibly indicates scrolls were lost
-ending made up by scribes?
Mes. secret> why Jesus not considered a Mesiah in his lifetime
"awe," question identity
recognizes Jesus? READER
diciples/ others hardened
What is a Messiah??
"Who do people think I am?"
-Mark wants reader to understand a new type of Messiah
(Peter's) misunderstanding= mesiah will not suffer, the Jewish people will
Jesus rebukes him- no glory and angels
tell no one until AFTER ressurection! FAITH
DIVINE NECESSITY> has to die, has to suffer
-everyone must suffer> Mark's direct addressal of the audience
-teacher+miracle worker by word+touch
Miracles couple TEACHINGS
-different than magician>Faith
Mark wants to concieve Jesus' wanting to serve not be served (M. secret)
Responses are critical
-Raising from the dead
Defiance of nature
Exorcism> casting out/ commanding
-largest/ most powerful performed
-sympotoms like an 'ailment'
Raising from the Dead
e.g. Roman soldier's daughter
get up and walk from death
apostles CAN'T heal (only specific situ.)
e.g. water to wine
loaves and fishes
reaction is important> lack of astonishment
ate and were satisfied
e.g. walking on water
storm at sea
Jews> counter voice
ACCUSATION, black magic
exaggeration in gospels?
miracles alone do not move ppl to accept mircacle worker
-TEACHINGS/ explaination are most critical (distinguish from magic)
WITNESSING ressurection? abs confidence in Jesus as God's son
Reactions come from...
