Re: Croy and Mark's ending
- I have no problem with Mark's ending. I believe the gospel ends where
Mark wanted it to end. The explanations offered in this thread have much
to commend them. My old tutor believed it ended where it did to put the
emphasis on the command to go to Galilee, interpreted as a call to
mission. Not sure whether that exegesis is current any longer.
I also have no problem with the ending of Acts. As regular readers of
this list will know, I believe it ends where Luke started writing.
