A Parabolic Analysis of the Trial of Jesus in Mark's Gospel: How a Literary Form Shapes the Description of an Historical Event
2018 1-4955-0659-2
Dr. Seeman's book looks at the trial of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark (15: 1-15) and contacts the passage with the Parable of the Sower in the same Gospel. Mark's depiction of their interaction links Jesus' fate with that of the other messengers in the story -- past, present, and future. The especially close correspondence between the circumstances of Jesus' and John's deaths reveal an antithetical contrast between the coming kingdom of God and the existing regimes of Herod and Pilate.
