    EBOOK [The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark] Half way through reading MacDonald's other work “Does the New Testament Imitate Homer” I converted from someone who used to believe these texts were backwards ramblings of ancient goat herders to understanding these writers whoev

    review The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark EBOOK [The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark] It's about time I read this book since it kept popping up in the footnotes and endnotes of many other Jesus books that I have read The thesis is defended solidly but the writing left a bit to be desired Now I suppose I'd better go read The Odyssey and The Iliad to make sure this guy is on the level

review The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark

review The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark Read & Download Ö PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ù Dennis Ronald MacDonald Dennis Ronald MacDonald Ù 5 review In this groundbreaking book Dennis R MacDonald offers an entirely new view of the New Testament gospel of Mark The author of the earliest gospel was not writing history nor was he merely recording tradition MacDonald argues Close reading and careful analysis show that Mark borrowed extensively from the Odyssey and the Iliad and that he wanted his readers to recognize the Homeric antecedents in Mark’s story of Jesus Mark was composing a prose. All of the gospels were written in Greek MacDonald makes a strong case that since 1st Cent Greek scholars were taught to write by imitating great Greek literature that it is uite possible even likely that Mark s gospel bears the marks of all these literary influences MacDonald then sets out to showprove pretty conclusively the allusions and parallels in Mark to Odysseus Telemachus and the Odyssey the Iliad MacDonald identifies several hundred verses in Mark that can be related to Greek Lit Most scholars agree that Mark was written first and then Matthew and Luke borrowed heavily from Mark often word for word So it becomes interesting to see what they left out or altered and how often it is things Mark probably took from Greek LitFascinating to me

review The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark Read & Download Ö PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ù Dennis Ronald MacDonald Dennis Ronald MacDonald Ù 5 review Anti epic MacDonald says presenting Jesus as a suffering hero modeled after but far superior to traditional Greek heroes Much like Odysseus Mark’s Jesus sails the seas with uncomprehending companions encounters preternatural opponents and suffers many things before confronting rivals who have made his house a den of thieves In his death and burial Jesus emulates Hector although unlike Hector Jesus leaves his tomb empty Mark’s minor charac. This is really an amazing book It s so detailed it may sometimes be not too easy to follow but the author s prose is very clear in documenting his theories This work claims that Mark s Gospel draws extensively from the Homeric epics especially The Odyssey and a couple of chapters from The Illiad Conclusions are unescapable upon finishing Mark s Gospel is not an historical account of real life characters It s a work of art very cleverly written with clear theological aims

review The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark Read & Download Ö PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ù Dennis Ronald MacDonald Dennis Ronald MacDonald Ù 5 review Ters too recall Homeric predecessors Bartimaeus emulates Tiresias; Joseph of Arimathea Priam; and the women at the tomb Helen Hecuba and Andromache And entire episodes in Mark mirror Homeric episodes including stilling the sea walking on water feeding the multitudes the Triumphal Entry and Gethsemane The book concludes with a discussion of the profound significance of this new reading of Mark for understanding the gospels and early Christianit. I think there is a gradient of Homeric influence with each parallel he mentions in the book Some parallels are close to nonexistent and others clearly show Mark s dependence on Homer Anyone who is interested in the Gospels should read this book it s one that needed to be written
