Chapter Summary

Professor Kurt Aland has indicated that there are several major errors in the citation of the manuscript evidence for the longer and shorter endings to Mark's Gospel in the apparatus criticus of currently available printed editions of the Greek New Testament. The other main problem concerning these endings which is often the subject of discussion is their language and style. Commentaries on Mark usually give detailed exegesis of the contents of the longer and shorter endings to the gospel, but the problems connected with the language and style are often dismissed with a statement such as Cranfield's, "In style and vocabulary they (the verses of the longer ending) are obviously non-Markan". Consequently, there is to author's knowledge no thoroughgoing analysis of the language and style of these endings compared with New Testament language in general or with Mark's gospel in particular.
