Chapter Summary

This index presents the list of terms and concepts of aural-oral narratives and Mark's memory resources. The statement that the Gospel of Mark was written to be read out (thus oral narrative) and listened to (aural narrative), rather than read to oneself, is no longer new in current biblical scholarship. What has received very little attention, however, is the fact that the Gospel of Mark was, though a written document, stored in and recalled from memory, rather than in a written form, on the part of the original audience. Modern biblical scholarship's concern about memory, however, has been focused primarily on its role in the pre-canonical synoptic transmission, failing to extend its effects into the communicative process of the canonical written Gospels.

Keywords:aural-oral narrative; Gospel of Mark; modern biblical scholarship
