The Gospel of Mark is the first of the synoptic gospels to be written and one of the sources for the subsequent gospels of Matthew and Luke. Mark's, so called, "low Christology", portrays a Jesus whose disciples are to take up the cross and "follow" him. This course will present a detailed investigation of the author's theology. By means of the historical-critical method and other strategies, attention will be paid to the literary sources, redactional elements and historical context of the gospel.
