About this course
Likely the earliest gospel, recent scholarship has come increasingly to appreciate the power and rich subtlety of this deceptively straightforward and until modern times somewhat neglected account of Jesus. The rehabilitation of Jesus' long-ignored Jewishness has, perhaps not unexpectedly, contributed to this renaissance including a new understanding not only of Mark's themes, structure, and remarkable coherence but also of a high Christology equal to anything in John, now recognized as present from the very beginning.
