Here's the abstract:
|Claiming that Mark is a Paulinist does not require that he agree with
|Paul about everything, and plausible reasons can be advanced for a later
|Paulinist wanting to write the story of the earthly Jesus. Martin Werner's
|assertion that the agreements between Mark and Paul reflect general early
|Christian viewpoints is not valid with regard to the theology of the cross,
|which was a controversial Pauline emphasis and a stress that the later
|Gospels attenuated in editing Mark. Contrary to Werner, Mark and Paul
|agree in ascribing Jesus' death to a combination of human and demonic
