A Tale of Two Markan Characterizations: The Exemplary Woman Who Anointed Jesus’ Body for Burial (14:3–9) and the Silent Trio Who Fled the Empty Tomb (16:1–8)

2010 (English)In: Women and Gender in Ancient Religions: Interdisciplinary Approaches / [ed] S. P. Ahearne-Kroll, P. A. Holloway and J. A. Kelhoffer, Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck , 2010, 1st, 85-98 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This essay develops two theses. First, Mark offers the anonymous woman who anointed Jesus’ body for burial (14:3–9) as a laudatory example of discipleship in contrast to the twelve apostles and in particular to Judas Iscariot.  Second, with the women who discover the empty tomb at the end of this Gospel (16:1–8) Mark offers a negative, rather than a positive, example of discipleship.  In the latter passage the women’s failure to report the message of the resurrection offers a narrative continuation of the Twelve’s many failures earlier in Mark. Therefore, attempts by some scholars to construe the women at the end of Mark as a positive example of discipleship are mistaken.
