Hapless Disciples and Exemplary Minor Characters in the Gospel of Mark: Exhortation to Cross-Bearing as both Encouragement and Warning
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Theology.
2014 (English)In: Texts and Traditions: Essays in Honour of J. Keith Elliott / [ed] Peter Doble and Jeffrey Kloha, Leiden: Brill Academic Publishers, 2014, 95-136 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

It is unhelpful that many scholars draw arbitrary distinctions between what is paraenetic or polemical, christological or anti-heretical in Mark’s negative characterizations of the twelve disciples. This essay holds that the many failures of the Twelve offer both encouragement and warning about the necessity of committed discipleship and a readiness to withstand hardship, as Jesus himself, along with numerous anonymous minor characters in Mark, had done.
