Not to beat a dead horse, or seem callous in the face of your apology,
but the abbreviations Charlesworth used/uses are not "his".
In any case, the question still remains of whether in the light of the
texts I cited , your claim that the expression "with the wild beasts" is
an interpolation that has no real thematic linkage with what Mark was
saying in Mk 1:12-13, or with the language and imagery found therein,
can be maintained.
That, after all, is what is under discussion.
