Item description for Messianic Secret in Mark's Gospel by Heikki Raisanen, Heikki Risnen & Christopher Tuckett...
This is a new and original study of Mark which challenges several important currently held views. The opening chapter examines the whole question of the methodology in the study of Mark's gospel, especially recent literary approaches. Raisanen incisively criticises those who seek to understand Mark's story world without reference to Mark's 'real life' concerns. Raisanen goes on to consider the collection of motifs in Mark generally known as the 'messianic secret'. He argues that there is no common explanation covering them all, but that they should all be interpreted seperately; and that the messianic secret proper may involve only a few motifs and is not necessarily the key to the whole of Mark's theology. Finally Raisanen considers why Mark developed the secrecy motif. This book will be of special interest to New Testament scholars, scientists of religion, theology students and clergy.
