Mark

This unit provides a thorough study of Mark’s Gospel, including its theological and literary character, its wider Jewish and Greco-Roman context and connections, and an overview of recent trends in Markan studies. A range of exegetical tools will be used to explore interpretive approaches to the Gospel of Mark, with particular emphasis on the way in which an understanding of community, mission and ethics is revealed in the narrative.
