Example text

Though some of Brandon's evidence supports his proposed historical situ­ ation, important pieces of it do not. As will be discussed more below, Bran­ don's theory also inadequately explains a number of Markan features, further weakening his theory. We will discuss this critique after examining the sec­ ond theory related to the notion that Mark writes his gospel as a defense. H N. ™ Like Brandon, Roskam dates Mark's gospel after the destruction of Jerusalem. Unlike Brandon, Roskam places Mark's publication in Galilee rather than Rome.

For Gundry, the gospel of Mark's sole purpose is to present an apology for the cross to a Greco-Roman audience who abhored weakness and praised strength. Because of the shame attached to crucifix­ ion, a crucified messiah would be highly unattractive to the Greco-Roman world. Therefore, according to Gundry, Mark presents Jesus as a supremely powerful being through his magnetism, his authoritative teaching, his mirac­ ulous deeds, his ability to predict the future, and even his death in which he demonstrates great dignity and strength.

The absence of resurrection appearances in Mark is not adequate to overturn evidence elsewhere that Mark expected such appearances. As many have argued, it is quite possible that Mark included res­ urrection appearances but that they have been lost. Certainly 14:28 and 16:7 are best understood by the reader as referring to the disciples seeing the resur­ rected Jesus rather than the apocalyptic "Son of Man" who comes in the clouds (descending from the heavens). It makes much more sense in the narrative for the disciples to wait three days in Galilee for the resurrected Jesus than to have them wait for thirty years for the Parousia.
