Product Description

This book addresses a special interest within narrative criticism by tracking the way in which the Gospel of Mark portrays characters other than Jesus. After outlining the four elements of narrative criticism: characters, settings, plot and rhetoric, Malbon explores aspects of the followers of the Markan Jesus: the twelve, women, crowds, the leaders, etc. showing how they function to advance the narrative by their interaction.
