Mark's Jesus: Characterization as Narrative Christology

Mark's Jesus: Characterization as Narrative Christology (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Noted biblical scholar Elizabeth Struthers Malbon asks a literary question in this landmark volume: how does the Markan narrative characterise Jesus? Through a close narrative analysis, she carefully examines various ways the Gospel discloses its central character. The result is a multi-layered Markan narrative christol-ogy, focusing not only on what the narrator and other characters say about Jesus (pro-jected christology), but also on what Jesus says in response to what these others say to and about him (deflected christology), what Jesus says instead about himself and God (refracted christology), what Jesus does (enacted christology), and how what other char-acters do is related to what Jesus says and does (reflected christology). Holding signifi-cant implications for those who wish to use Mark's Gospel to make claims about the his-torical Jesus, as well as for those who wish to use Mark's Gospel to construct confessions about the church's belief, Malbon's research is a groundbreaking work of scholarship.
