Item description for Exploring the Messianic Secret in Mark's Gospel by John M. Perry...
Overview John Michael Perry argues that Mark attempted to show that God had a secret Messianic purpose for Jesus that was contrary to what Jews expected. Perry further argues that Mark used biblical texts in his history to show that God's purpose was revealed to Jesus at his baptism and that Jesus knew he was secretly destined for rejection. However, Perry thinks that there is good evidence to support the idea that Jesus did not learn that he was the secret Messiah until after the resurrection. Still, Perry argues that there is much in Mark's theology that has value today, despite the difference between Mark version of history and the actual history. John Michael Perry is a professor of Religious Studies at Stritch College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
