Sample text

However, this call to repentance, which involves teaching people how the repentant person should live, will bring trouble and death to Jesus. There are many of his generation who think Jesus a traitor to the traditions of Judaism, particularly in what they consider his rather frivolous disobedience towards 20 MARK traditions regarding the sabbath and his disregard for the many traditional laws of purity or cleanliness. Thus, for Mark, the anointing of Jesus means that we have a king who is anointed to preach the kingdom and urge entry into it.

But now he would be their shepherd. And so, Israel looked for a new kingdom. Since many knew that God was ultimately king of Israel, they expected a king who would be human but who would be a true representative of God's love for his people. Meditating on their ancient and traditional experiences, they looked for the day when a king would again be appointed over them who was holy, wise and powerful. He would provide a kingdom in which Israel would enjoy the greatest blessings and perfection. When will he come?

The son of man ... has come to give his life as a ransom for many" (10, 45). At times, so great is the concentration of the gospel on Jesus' death, one wonders if Jesus' coming was uniquely to give his life as a ransom for many. But even the figure of the son of man/servant gives way finally to another image, indeed the image which both closes Mark's description of Jesus in the words of the centurion at the cross (15, 39) and begins it (1, 1): "Son of God". "Son of God'" is used now to explain how it is that the Messiah will quietly, determinedly accept humiliation, betrayal, punishments, injustice and crucifixion, and will necessarily rise from all this to life again.
