Example text

In the end, the women’s Easter message extends an invitation of a reunion with Jesus, which will facilitate the disciples’ apostolic mission. Stock’s book raises the question whether discipleship in Mark does in fact admit the preeminence of the motif of being-with Jesus, which subsumes and overrides the failure of the disciples. To some extent an answer will depend on a reading of the ending of Mark’s Gospel. But even if one were to share Stock’s preference for a happy resolution, it would have to be projected outside the given story.

Lord (1960), and Walter J. Ong (1967b; 1977a; 1982) on orality, it should be obvious that form criticism paid lip service to the world of spoken words. Had form critics seriously sought to explore oral hermeneutics, as well as the processes of transformation of sounded words through textualization, they might well have concluded that preservation was not necessarily the Gospel’s primary function. Whether the appeal was to entitlement by apostolic authority, the cumulative force of tradition, the abiding effectiveness of an incipient core message, or to the impulse to stem the tide of forgetfulness—the Gospel was invariably viewed as preserver of tradition and guarantor of continuity.

Much of his Markan scholarship was designed to demonstrate that Mark’s Gospel was the result of a “self-conscious … editor, redactor, and author” (1969, 51, n. 8). But there is evidence that even Perrin did not fully realize the implications of his work as far as our understanding of the history of the tradition was concerned. He was, under the tutelage of Joachim Jeremias and Bultmann, preoccupied with myth and history and the relation between the historical Jesus versus the kerygmatic Gospel, and he never made a sustained effort at revising the gradualist, evolutionary model of tradition and Gospel.
