Contents The shape of the question -- Analysis of Mark 3:22-30 -- Apocalyptic discourse in Jewish tradition -- Mark's apocalyptic discourse in character, plot and narrative -- Mark's apocalyptic discourse in a story (5:1-20) and a speech (13:5-37) -- Overcoming the strong man : the nature and manifestation of power in Mark -- Epilogue
Summary This narrative study uses Mark 3:22-30 as an interpretive lens to show that the Gospel of Mark has a thoroughly apocalyptic outlook. Unlike many narrative studies, this book clarifies Mark's symbols, metaphors, and themes in view of the socio-religious context in which it was written. Mark's apocalyptic discourse portrays the Spirit-filled Jesus in a struggle against Satan to free people for a community that does God's will. This discourse develops throughout the Gospel, functioning to persuade readers that God displays power from weakness, and offering a coherent reading of Mark
