The crowds make the commissioning of the disciples, more than their calling in the hope they will succeed to the end, the real need. After being baptized by John the Baptist, Jesus was tempted by the devil for 40 days and nights in the Judaean Desert.During this time, Satan came to Jesus and tried to tempt him. Canonical Luke can therefore be read as making changes to Mark’s gospel that reflect a program to strengthen the foundational place of the disciples in the Church. But they diverge on the details: in Mark’s Gospel, the disciples are primarily portrayed as “learners,” which is a nice way of saying that they still have a lot to learn. . In Mark’s gospel, there is no certainty about the fate of the disciples at the conclusion, and in Matthew some of the disciples even doubted the resurrected Jesus. [7] At one point, Peter even rebukes Jesus for what Jesus has taught him. The book is written to the Gentiles as well, and all people everywhere. Church Fathers wrote, and Bruce Metzger and Bart Ehrman agree, that Marcion edited Luke to fit his own theology, Marcionism. [35]One interpretive move that Brown makes that is enormously helpful is to suggest that the quest for the one original version of events is often doomed by the realization that Jesus is likely to have taught similar sermons on multiple occasions. , Maybe, by listing the grave clothes, the Gospel of John creates a verisimilitude that gives more credence to all that…, Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License, When, Why and How People Change Their Minds, Applying Bayesian Reasoning to Trump’s Claims of Election Fraud, Tactics of Religious Innovation: Deuteronomy and Gospels « Vridar. If there was only one anointing and Luke has made these changes to Mark’s narrative, then Luke exercised a relatively free hand in molding details to serve his theological interests. Here’s the thing, though: Mark does not need to be the person who attached verses 9-20, or even the person who wrote them, in order for these 12 verses to be part of the original text. They are confirmed as his witnesses. This similarity is what some scholars have dubbed the ‘synoptic problem.’ This raises a lot of questions. How […] Did Jesus Model Himself on Elijah?

One need not be too bothered by discrepancies between, for example, the Sermon on the Mount and the Sermon on the Plain because it is probably the case that Jesus delivered slightly different iterations of that sermon on not just one or two but many occasions. Helpers are marshaled in response to the growing need for help given the escalating success of Jesus’ ministry. The most we can see here is that Jesus, logically, calls Peter for the first time before joining him in his house.

The gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are referred to as the synoptic Gospels because they include many of the same stories, often in a similar sequence and in similar or sometimes identical wording. Contrast Luke: as Brown points out, in Luke’s Gospel, references to the temple are frequent and positive. Just in case you`re confused, OTH is Trump, not Biden. Gospel According to Mark, second of the four New Testament Gospels and, with Matthew and Luke, one of the three Synoptic Gospels. . Mark 10:44-45...and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. so why don’t we have Marcion’s actual work then? 2. Matt 28:19-20: Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Brown argues for two different anointings, writing that “the differences [between] the accounts are decisive.”[34] This position has the advantage of preserving the historical reliability of Luke’s narrative. Why did Luke change Matthew’s Nativity? Luke supplies a genealogy of Jesus, a detailed account of Christ's birth, as well as the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. This is true. Here are some things to look out for in the book of Mark: Mark emphasizes the power of Jesus. (See the Infancy Narratives discussion and the Body of Luke discussion. ), “Canonical Luke can therefore be read as making changes to Mark’s gospel that reflect a program to strengthen the foundational place of the disciples in the Church.”. In Mark, the woman shows her understanding of who Jesus is through the symbolic act of anointing, while the guests and disciples still do not understand who he is. Talbert also observes that with Luke’s narrative the disciples are supplied with a reason to believe in Jesus and follow him. But Mark did not write them as the ending of his Gospel-account, and he did not attach them to 16:8. Longer answer: Step 1: For Mark, the Egyptian Prophet was just one source of many. It may not feel complete. Jesus and the Historian - Bart Ehrman. Learn how your comment data is processed. Nancy Fraser – June 2019 (personal email), “Vridar is consistently thought-provoking, well-informed, and asking the right questions. And this may explain why Luke omits Mark 14:3–9: it doesn’t fit with his view of the temple; by omitting Mark’s anointing story, Luke has removed the capstone to Mark’s temple theology, which shows the temple to be hopelessly corrupted. Mark and John jump straight into his baptism and ministry without reference to how or where he was born. as individual as personal testimonies; they each approach Jesus from a different angle.”[30] So it is perhaps no surprise that, given the limitations under which they had to work, the Gospel writers would choose different stories in order to highlight or de-emphasize certain aspects of Jesus’ life. They will reappear at the cross and at the tomb, following him to Jerusalem and thereby becoming first-rank witnesses of his resurrection. It is the shortest and the earliest of the four Gospels and is traditionally attributed to St. Mark, a disciple of St. Peter. (Part 1). A third example concerns the woman’s understanding of who Jesus is: in Luke’s story, the woman understands enough about Jesus’ identity to anticipate his ability to forgive, while at the end of the story, the dinner guests are still wondering who Jesus is. ): How and why would Luke have edited Mark 14:3-9 contrasted with Luke 7:36-50? Some ask why the ointment, which was incredibly expensive, was wasted when it could have been sold and the money given to the poor. So Luke relocates the memorial from the telling of the anointing woman’s story to participation in the ritual meal. A second reason that Luke may have omitted Mark’s story is due to its portrayal of women’s roles. His answer prioritizes the anointing due to the limited window of time during which it is possible. Vridar » Making of a Mythicist — ch 17 . Mark thus condemns the temple as hopelessly corrupt. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. The claim is Matthew did not write Matthew; John did not write John; Mark did not write Mark; and Luke did not write Luke. The Gospel of Rome vs. the Gospel of Jesus Christ: Two New testament Responses from the Churches Founded by Paul by Marianne P. Bonz May 30, 1998, Harvard University. [23]Compare Mark 11:12–14 with Luke 13:6–9. Luke simply wrote another testament. Whether this change was made to harmonize with Matthew’s account or to reflect Mark’s original text cannot be determined. Quite possible the mangled Luke “Marcion gospel” was merely an attempt by fledgling disciples to reproduce his lost work. [3] In addition, John is ascribed with the Fourth Gospel by Irenaeus in his work Against Heresies [4] . [14]This does not imply that Luke always separates his male and female characters; in the following stories, men and women are featured together: see Luke 1:5–7, 1:24–25, 1:57–63, 2:1–7, 2:15–20, 2:41–52, 4:38–39, 7:36–50, 8:19–21, 12:45, 12:53, 14:26, 16:18, 17:32, 18:1–8, 18:29, 20:27–38, 21:1–4, 23:49, (possibly) 24:13–35 (if a woman is one of the disciples). [13] If Luke understood Mark to say that the disciples objected to the anointing, he might have chosen not to include this story in his own record because it did not cohere with the message that he wanted to present: Mark’s text shows a teaching moment, not a consecration opportunity, and thus doesn’t fit Luke’s focus. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. I refer to your site frequently as yet more names and publications pop up requiring an academic critique and helpful recommendations for book purchases. So despite the incongruity of Jesus appearing to enter Peter’s house before we appear to be told how the two met, there is a discernible narrative logic to the Lukan sequence. Next, in recent years, much attention has been paid to the symbolic use of narrative space in Mark’s Gospel. Couldn’t they include the stories and sayings that they do simply because Jesus did and said those things?This view is known as the Independence hypothesis, and it is the position that most people hold—at least before they start looking closely at the issue. ): 1. Your email address will not be published. [4] Spoiler alert: we don’t know—and we cannot determine―why he did this. She had been happy at the thought of being the mother of the Messiah (Luke 1:35; Luke 2:46-52) but had had no comprehension of the suffering Servant, or any willingness for Him to be such. “Neil, You’ve done a clean job in your posting on ‘Jesus the Healer’. [31]See Roger R. Keller, “Mark and Luke: Two Facets of a Diamond,” in Sperry Symposium Classics: The New Testament, ed. However, neither of these theories is as likely as the interpretation offered in this paper, which is that Luke intentionally omitted the anointing story. Today I’d like to consider the reasons why Luke might have omitted this story. This looks very much like the sort of thing we read in Exodus and Acts. Mark 9:35 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of … Nonetheless, Nephi’s shaping achieves the laudable goal of presenting a clear choice between good and evil and this benefits his readers. And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him. 3 (January 1, 2013): 302–319. Mark has highlighted its shortcomings. But in Luke the theme of the crowds and the miracle of the fish-catch make it clear that the image means the converting of people to Christ. Use the following two sets of passages to support your claim. Frank F. Judd Jr. and Gaye Strathearn (Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University; Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 2006), 92–107. [11]Compare Mark 3:14 with Luke 6:12–16, Mark 9:32 with Luke 9:45, (Mark 10:35–41 is entirely omitted by Luke), (Mark 8:32–33 is entirely omitted by Luke), Mark 14:31 with Luke 22:31–34, and Mark 14:50 with Luke 22:53–54. Firstly, two of the four Gospels don't feature the story of Jesus' birth at all. ): 1. Mark’s book reflects Peter’s interest in spreading the gospel among the Gentiles. [5] They sometimes do not understand what Jesus is saying. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. ‘Vridar: Musings on biblical studies, politics, religion, ethics, human nature, tidbits from science’ (http://vridar.org/) by Neil Godfrey”, — Klaas Spronk, – Bibliotheca Orientalis LXXI, 3/4 (2014), “I think you have a high quality blog that provides a positive public service by discussing academic topics within a wider audience.”. I don’t always agree with them, but I respect their work.”, Thanks much for this book review. John wrote last and had knowledge of the other Gospels. By the way, my thanks to Neil for an ongoing superb job of exposing Jim’s review for what it is: a farcical and none too effective exercise in mythicism assassination, nothing to do with rational, let alone unbiased, scholarship. I’m also happy to see even Jim giving Neil credit where credit is due. He became a follower after the Lord’s death, when Paul taught him the gospel. It is also possible that both Mark and Luke work from earlier (oral and/or written) traditions which lack the anointing story and only Mark chose to add the story to this location. But in Luke, the rending of the veil occurs immediately before Jesus dies, suggesting an entirely different symbolism: what Brown calls “the unhappy hand”[24] of God expressing displeasure at Jesus’ death. It is the mushrooming crowds that make them a necessity. There are solid reasons to believe that Mark was the first of the four Gospels to be written and that Luke used Mark as a source. Mark and Luke said that Peter didn’t know what he said. So when Peter is commanded to cast his net in the sea and he replies, “At your word I will do it”, it is plausibly to think that the reader is meant to understand that Peter already knows the power of Jesus’ word. Best, Emanuel. [39] These additions serve as examples of an authorized messenger (in this case, Joseph Smith) presenting a rather changed view of Jesus’ mortal ministry. Is it my imagination or is there really a sequential narrative development that I see here? (2) The wording is frequently very similar and changes follow a pattern, including omission of the historical present tense (in 150 out of 151 instances), reduction in the use of the words “and” and “immediately,” providing antecedents to pronouns that might be ambiguous, and a more refined style of Greek writing in general. They each probably could have … The fact that this introduction of Luke’s Gospel makes his Gospel no more than a personal letter. Luke has chosen to shine his light on a different, but equally important, message about what it means to be a disciple. But seldom have I looked at the whole Gospel of Luke as I did in preparation for writing the Lectio: Guided Bible Reading for Winter Quarter. How and why would Luke have edited Mark 14:3-9 contrasted with Luke 7:36-50? And so it tells the story in some slightly different ways than do the other gospels. That’s assuming that Marcionites were a separate religion rather than a Why was the Gospel Narrative set around 30 CE? Use the following two sets of passages to support your claim. Secondly, the Luke 5 lake scene is not a calling of the disciples as it is in Mark’s gospel. To read more about Neil, see our. . Why is he mentioned without any explanation when he first appears? No firm conclusions can be reached, but in all likelihood, he left the story out because it didn’t fit one or more of his theological objectives. So is the shared irony of the complaint evidence of overlap, or are the differing details evidence of separation? Luke describes the births of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ. I’ll try to offer something more substantial than “Thank you” in response at some point, but I didn’t want to wait . “I have found your website really valuable as an interpretive filter for Biblical scholarship, especially the origins of Christianity and historicity of Jesus issue. This is a very hopeful message. The Joseph Smith Translation turns this scene on its head. dissenting view among the ‘Catholics.’ If the latter be the case, which it obviously is, then the Catholic bishops could very well have destroyed Marcion’s original gospel, leaving those who followed his views to have to recreate it by editing one of the canonical gospels according to his principles. Yes each gospel characterized him differently partly because of the individual characteristics of the authors and the audience their gospel was directed towards. The first reason is that the story didn’t fit the message that Luke wanted to convey about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Thank you for this careful and engaged reading of my work – much appreciated!”, “Very good. For example, Luke was not an apostle, but he was a protégé of the apostle Paul. Latter-day Saint beliefs, perhaps more than those of other Christians, are well suited to accommodate strong editors because we believe in the inspired revision of scripture and we are not tied to the sole authority of a closed canon. Similarly, we might suspect that Nephi has presented his wayward brothers in stark black and white tones when a more objective observer, such as Lehi, might have had a little more grey in his palette. In general, Brown presents Luke as highly historically reliable. By contrast it is readily possible to read the Gospel of Mark as concluding with the total failure of Jesus’ disciples. And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, That Gospel remains as its own unique testament. Then there is an omission before Luke resumes Mark’s story of Judas’ role in the plot to kill Jesus in verses 3–6. (After all, if you had had the first draft of some Nephite scriptures, you wouldn’t have had the account of Samuel the Lamanite.) The temptation of Christ is a biblical narrative detailed in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. On the other hand, Luke edited the book of Mark by giving a detailed information, where one of the Pharisees invites Jesus to eat… (1198 Words) The gospels of Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13 and Luke 4:1-13 tell us that Jesus was tempted by the tempter (Matthew 4:3) or Satan (Mark 1:13), who is also called the devil (Luke 4:3). There are intelligent, thoughtful comments and commenters regularly offering productive discussion. It’s from then that the Nag Hammadi collection (hidden during a time of such persecution) dates. His work is the product of a sophisticated theological mind, assisted by the Holy Spirit, of course. It would have been most contrary to cultural expectations for a woman to anoint Jesus’ head, especially with these symbolic meanings, and so we have our second reason why Luke might have omitted the story. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. However, it can be argued that there is a good case to be made that the Gospel writers exercised a stronger editorial hand as they shaped a theologically rich presentation of the life of Jesus. Where did Peter come from? Luke’s omission would then not reflect his specific intent in this case. Discipleship is an enormously important theme in both Mark’s and Luke’s Gospels. John’s last chapter also depicts a miracle of an overwhelming catch of fish at the word of Jesus, and in that context it is clearly a metaphor for the conversions that Peter is expected to accomplish. So I am not arguing that Luke’s story is the same as Mark’s; I’m not convinced of that. Helpers are marshaled in response to the growing need for help given the escalating success of Jesus’ ministry. [29] We can’t discern Luke’s motives from this historical distance, but this examination has shown that Mark’s anointing story would not have helped Luke develop several of his major themes. . The gospel of Matthew was written to a Jewish audience, There is evidence that the original gospel of Matthew was written in Hebrew or aramaic, possibly around AD 50. Like St. Matthew, Luke derives much of his Gospel from that of St. Mark, generally following Mark’s sequence and incorporating about 50 percent of Mark’s material into his work.The Gospels of Luke and Matthew, however, share a good deal of material not found in The Gospel According to Mark, suggesting that the two evangelists may have had access to another common source. And if I may make a general comment on the question of what an LDS commentary might have to offer to the larger world of biblical studies: I can think of few analytical approaches more fitting than a special attention to home and family dynamics in sacred text, especially when combined, as Brown has done here, with close attention to and respect for women’s stories. Traditionally since the earliest times of the church, the Evangelists[1] have been ascribed to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. they were hearing him, and asking him questions” (JST 2:46). And Jesus is very patient with them while they do so. I believe Luke edited Mark 14 3-9 because he wanted to portray a clearer understanding of what it means to follow Jesus. In fact, Godfrey is extremely well read and his librarian skills have brought many important academic works to my attention. Thus on an obvious level, Mark’s Christology is low. Being a disciple of Jesus Christ is one of the most important teachings in the books of Luke and mark. Explain how and why Luke may have edited Mark’s Gospel. 6 (December 1, 2012): 435–441. While Mark doesn’t identify the “some,” there are good reasons to believe that they are the disciples. Luke had been a physician, but he left that profession to travel with Paul. In Mark’s text, some who witness the anointing complain about the waste of ointment. 2. Relying on eyewitness evidence and oral tradition, couldn’t Matthew, Mark, and Luke have written independently of each other? Or was it just a consequence of clumsy editing? But Matthew omitted this. The contrast between Luke and Mark’s portrayal of the temple is never as keen as it is when Jesus dies: Mark narrates the rending of the temple veil after Jesus’ death, suggesting increased temple access through the death of Jesus; this is his final reference to the temple. And in other areas too: Why does Jesus mention his deeds at Capernaum before he is said to have entered Capernaum? Filed under: Biblical Studies, New Testament Did two of the writers copy from one? I still wonder at all the material you turn out for Vridar. Luke’s view of discipleship is somewhat different. So, please continue to delve deeply and share this intellectual sustenance with your grateful readers.”, — Mary Booker, – February 2020 (personal email), “These reviews of yours are so bloody weird!”. “Catholics” were never in a position to crush dissenting views until the fourth century. Given that both high and low christologies are combined in one story, the picture that emerges is full. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. Some scholars believe that Mark was a companion and assistant to Peter and based his account on Peter's … I found that covering Luke's Gospel in 11 chapters of 2,500 words each was a major challenge. [40] In Luke’s case, if he has in fact edited Mark’s story, his shaping may have been related to his interest in presenting gender pairs, since Luke’s anointing―and, especially, the ways in which it differs from Mark’s version―has many parallels with the story of the calling of Levi and the subsequent controversy over eating with him. Jesus is not the learner but the teacher, even at a young age (see the Note on 2:46; the Analysis on 2:40–52).” Brown, Luke, page 22. The story shows the woman symbolically enacting a prophetic understanding that Jesus is the anointed priest and king who will suffer and die.[3]. [37]An example of this from Brown: “In another example, we glimpse the youthful Jesus in the temple while his parents are frantically looking for him. The resurrected Jesus opens their understanding to the Jewish scriptures that were said to be prophetic of him, and he commands them to remain in Jerusalem until they are given heavenly power. © 2014 Brigham Young University. The temptation of Christ is a biblical narrative detailed in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Jesus casts out a demon – his fame spreads, Jesus enters Peter’s house and heals Peter’s mother-in-law, Many look for Jesus but Jesus leaves them behind. But perhaps her hair was loose because she was prophesying (see 1 Corinthians 11:56); then Luke’s story would contain the same picture of a prophetic woman as Mark’s―they would be conveying the same idea but in different ways. As we have learned from our previous modules, Mark was very direct and to the point in his account of the Gospel. 5. [10] These six instances reflect Mark’s vision of discipleship: Mark teaches that Jesus doesn’t expect his disciples to be flawless; he expects them to stick close by so that they might increase in understanding. [14] Notice that this phenomenon occurs in both Luke’s selection of stories and in Jesus’ spoken teachings. But what about the omission? The Gospel of Luke is one of the only two Gospels which includes an infancy narrative, the other being Matthew. Crowds become too much for the prophet or apostle. In Mark, Jesus calls and the disciples mysteriously follow immediately. On what bases would one think that it might have included that? Dr. Darrell Bock - "Did Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John actually author the gospel accounts?"
