Item description for The Problem of Markan Genre: The Gospel of Mark and the Jewish Novel (Academia Biblica (Society of Biblical Literature) (Paper)) by Michael E. Vines...

This study wrestles with the problem of the literary genre of Mark's gospel. Drawing on Bakhtin's theory of genre and his examination of Greco-Roman literary genres, the author compares the latter with the Gospel of Mark. Although the Gospel of Mark is in some respects similar to Greco-Roman novelistic genres, the author maintains that it compares more favourably with Jewish novelistic literature of the Hellenistic period, and that Mark writes within this narrative tradition. In both the Gospel of Mark and the Jewish novel, salvation is accomplished through divinely appointed agents. In telling the story of Jesus the messiah, Mark adapts a narrative tradition that formerly served to subvert foreign oppressors, and uses it against the Jewish leaders who oppose Jesus.

No "Problem" with Mike Vines  Aug 2, 2003
Everybody who has ever wondered what the problem was with the Markan Genre(and who hasn't!) needs to read this book. What a page turner! I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for number 4 to come out. The book was only 224 pages so it probably didn't take too long to write. If Dr. Vines takes a little more time on the next book, it could be even more in-depth. Keep up the good work Mike!
