Mark's intensive use of wonder, often redactional, impels us to regard the passion and empty tomb scenes as manifesting God's presence. Mark is unique among the Gospels in the density of his wonder language, which signifies the breaking in of the rule of God. Miracles, teaching, restoration to community, passion and empty tomb are all marked as divine interventions in the Gospel by reactions of wonder.
