In this commentary, Broadhead explores the Gospel of Mark for literary designs that might guide modern readers. He gives special attention to structure, strategy, significance and the appropriation of meaning, and his analysis shows the Gospel as a sequential account which employs a strategy of reciprocity among its episodes. Clear signs are created within this Gospel, the meaning of which is negotiated by the first readers in the aftermath of the Temple’s fall. Modern readers are encouraged to connect these signs to their own world and to initiate a new performance of this Gospel.
This Second Edition is a reprint, with altered pagination, of the volume first published in 1991 by Sheffield Academic Press.
