Language: English . Brand New Book. This book proposes that Mark s Gospel was written in Rome in late 71 after the return of the feared Titus who had recently destroyed the Jerusalem Temple. Recognising that the use of emotional appeals was a prime contemporary rhetorical tool, it shows the Gospel to be an emotionally-charged text aimed at readers traumatised by years of persecution, fear of arrest and intra-community tensions over the forgiveness of those who had failed. It examines the political, social and religious situation and shows that the Gospel contains allusions to many recent events of concern to Christians. Mark stirs their fears and painful memories to move them to a new resolve, providing a model for them - Jesus, the first martyr for the gospel. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9789004131088
Synopsis : This book proposes that Mark's Gospel was written in late 71 for the traumatised Christians of Rome, who feared further arrests after Titus' return from Jerusalem, to help them face their fears and forgive those who had already failed.
Critique: '...Incigeri has presented a rigorous case for a Roman provenance for the Gospel of Mark and raised some interesting arguments for a specific date of 71 C.E. It is a study that I imagine will prompt further dialogue and engagement on the subject...' Michael F. Bird, Review of Biblical Literature, 2005. '...will be of interest to scholars concerned about recent discussions of the Markan community... Dwight N. Peterson, Review of Biblical Literature, 2005. 'Incigneri has taken a daring approach...' Zeba A. Crook, Journal of Biblical Literature, 2006. '...a challenging book which all students of Mark will find suggestive and thought-provoking...' Christopher Tuckett, The Expository Times.
