- A few years ago I read a comment on Mk 14.22 in which it is said that
Jesus broke bread and gave this to his disciples with the words, "This
is my body". The writer suggested that the action of breaking followed
by the explanatory statement was a prophetic deed followed by its
interpretation, an instance of "prophetic symbolism". On this basis, the
argument ran, the account in Mark assumes that Jesus did not expect to
be crucified, but to be stoned to death, since stoning would have broken
the body rather than crucifixion. I have been trying to find this piece
of writing without success, and my memory may be confused about the
exact argument used. However, does anyone, please, know of such a
written comment on this passage? My vague recollection is that what I
read was by a Jewish writer?
