By Brenda Deen Schildgen

Here is a compact research of the way Mark's Gospel meditates on time. It examines how the Gospel's modern surroundings in traditional time defines its style, and the way Mark makes use of the Hebrew scriptures to recollect and keep in mind prior teachings, prophecies and histories. The suspended time narratives, Mark's 'intercalations', however, interrupt the narrative of the serious time current. eventually, by way of bringing the everlasting horizon into the occasions of the current, Mark's 'mythic time' finds the difficulty occasions as a temporary interruption of normal time. equally, through the 'ritual time', the Gospel narrative breaks with its personal old environment so that it will resolve the dead-endedness of the challenge tale by means of symbolically taking it outdoor time.
