A Postcolonial Reading of Mark's Story of Jesus
Language: en
Pages: 206
Authors: Simon Samuel
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2007-04-18 - Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
This unique contribution to Markan studies reads Mark's story of Jesus from a postcolonial perspective. It proposes that Mark need not necessarily be treated in an oversimplified polarity as an anti- or pro-colonial discourse. Instead it may be treated as a postcolonial discourse, i.e. as a hybrid discourse that accommodates and disrupts both the native Jewish and the Roman colonial discourses of power. It shows that Mark accommodates itself into a strategic third space in between the variegated native Jewish and the Roman colonial discourses in order to enunciate its own voice. As an ambivalent and hybrid discourse it mimics and mocks, accommodates and disrupts both the Jewish as well as the Roman colonial voices. The portrait of Jesus in Mark, which Samuel shows to be encoding also the portrait of a community, exhibits a colonial/ postcolonial conundrum which can neither be damned as pro- nor be praised as anti-colonial in nature. Instead the portrait of Jesus in Mark may be appreciated as a strategic essentialist and transcultural hybrid, in which the claims of difference and the desire for transculturality are both contradictorily present and visible. In showing such a portrait and invoking a complex discursive strategy Mark as the

Type: BOOK - Published: 1993 - Publisher: BRILL
This volume generates a narrative grammar which unites linguistic, structuralistic, rhetorical, and reader-response methods and then uses it to investigate the textual indicators for interpreting the ending of the Gospel of Mark. The first part of this book generates the narrative grammar in response to significant contemporary writings on methods of narrative analysis. The second part provides a detailed analysis of the Gospel's larger narrative units. The analysis isolates narrative units according to a consistent set of criteria, grounds the interpretation on a limited number of qualifications of the implied reader, indicates the centrality of the literary and rhetorical traditions of the Hebrew Bible for interpretation, clarifies the model of irony used in the narrative, and accounts for the negative presentation of the disciples on narrative grounds.

Type: BOOK - Published: 1996 - Publisher:
"A "team-authored," popular-level version of Ched Myers' monumental study of Mark, Binding the Strong Man, which adapts its socio-literary method of reading to a work ideal for study and reflection by groups or individuals with limited background in biblical scholarship. Walter Wink called the best-selling Binding the Strong Man "quite simply the most important commentary on a book of scripture since Barth's Romans." Now, "Say to this Mountain" makes the powerful insights of that challenging commentary accessible and at the same time explores the connections between Mark's "handbook of discipleship" and the demands of our contemporary world." "In "Say to this Mountain" Myers is joined by a team of authors, Catholic and Protestant, committed to the work of justice and peace, the renewal of the church, and to Christian discipleship. With Myers they share in the conviction that Mark's story has transforming power only as it intersects with our own life-stories and the broader story of the times in which we live. Together, this team has designed a process for reading the Gospel of Mark in which each of the three circles of story informs the other." "Carefully organized in reading units for easy study each section includes two parts:
