Chapter Summary

Frames play a significant role in organizing the structures of the oral-aural narrative discourse in Mark 2.1-3.6 and in identifying the 'gist' memory of each episode within it on the part of the hearer. This chapter examines the ways in which frames help the audience readily and quickly to understand what the text, Mark 2.1-3.6, says. Structurally, this investigation will be made on the basis of the sequential flow of the story frame (stage, inciting incident, mounting tension, climax, closure). It relies on the properties of frames. The chapter explores how frames may have contributed to the audience's ready and quick comprehension of the information in Mark 2.1-3.6.
