9766Re: [Synoptic-L] Jesus' Baptism
- Jun 2, 2004Very briefly:
I think Mark is concerned about apostasty during a period of persecution and
portrays Jesus (in contrast to Peter) as a model for Christian behavior in
troubled times. Mark narrates Jesus' entire "Christian" existence from the
time he receives the indwelling Holy Spirit to the time he is executed for
refusing to deny that Jesus is the Christ.
