Example text

Granted that the narrator characterizes the disciples both favorably and unfavorably, is there not a point in the story whence the negativity prevails, leading readers to alter their initial, positive impression? For Ernest Best, Markan discipleship is not primarily polemical and not meant to attack some group within or outside the community. Least of all did the evangelist intend a critique of the historical disciples. Indeed, the weakness of the disciples must not be exaggerated. Their inability, for example, to come to terms with suffering and the cross compares favorably with the ruthless desire of scribes, rulers, and Pharisees to seek Jesus’ 18 IMPRINTS, VOICEPRINTS, AND FOOTPRINTS OF MEMORY death.

The desire to muffle the effects of Markan discipleship still seems less urgent to me than the obligation to explore its fuller ramifications, for the Markan exposition of the theme is more consequential than often assumed. If I take up discipleship in Mark again, therefore, it is out of a conviction that its implications have as yet not been brought to bear upon such issues as the form of the Gospel, its connection with what preceded it, and also the role of Easter among competing early Christian traditions.

The Gospel, by this logic, was almost always perceived to stand in unbroken or evolutionary continuity with tradition. Given the deep interiorization of the model of tradition’s gradual ascent to the Gospel, the integrity of a Gospel and the novelty of its form were consistently underrated. That the Gospel could have been written for the purpose of correcting, rather than protecting, tradition was an idea whose day had not yet come. The road toward a new appreciation of the composition of a Gospel was paved by redaction criticism and literary criticism.
