Acknowledgments -- Abbreviations -- 1. Introduction -- 2. Proposed Method in the Study of Paradox in the Gospel of Mark -- 3. The Paradox of Authority and Servanthood in Mark 1.1-8.21 -- 4. Paradox of Authority and Servanthood in Mark 8.22-10.52 -- 5. Paradox of Authority and Servanthood in Mark 11.1-16.8 -- Summary and Implications of the Paradox of Authority and Servanthood in the Gospel of Mark -- Bibliography -- Index of References -- Index of Authors.
Summary: The Gospel of Mark is often described as a paradoxical gospel, a riddle that teases its readers' response, and a narrative that possesses an enigmatic and puzzling character. Santos argues that this puzzling character is seen clearly in the paradox of authority and servanthood in the gospel. In tracing and analyzing this paradox throughout the Markan narrative, he first develops a literary method for the study of paradox, and having applied the results to authority and servanthood in Mark, he discusses key contributions of the paradox to the three Markan issues of the disciples' role in the Go.
