Blount's analysis demonstrates the social intent of every reading and shows the influence of communicative context in such diverse readings of the Bible as Rudolf Bultmann's, the peasants of Solentiname, the Negro spirituals, and black-church sermons. Blount then shows how his proposal helps in assessing the several readings of Mark's trial scenes and the figure of Jesus there.
