Re: [Synoptic-L] The Wrede/Schmithals theory
- Wieland, this is my understanding of the current state of
scholarship on your questions. Hopefully, if I write
something too outrageous, I'll be corrected.

Achtemeier, Trocme, etc.), it appears that there are at least
as many proposals as the scholars who make them. In other
words, there is no consensus and most prefer not to assume
that Mark went through a plurality of editions (except for
the addition of 16:9-20).
>2. What other explanations are there for Wrede's Messiah secret today?I think the trend is to categorize Wrede's messianic secret into
three or four discrete types and offer different explanations for
each. In other words, there is no one overarching answer for all
the phenomena that Wrede identified.
>3. Does final Q knows GMark?The majority view is that Mark and Q are independent. Those
who differ from that rarely suggest that Q was known to Mark.
For example, Fledderman's word suggests the opposite, that
Mark knows Q, but his method in my opinion is severely flawed.
