Chapter Summary

The early church was accused again and again of opposition to the temple, in the case of Stephen, Paul and all the apostles. It appears that this saying in Mk I4:58 was important in the anti-Christian polemic of the time of Mark and has for this reason found a place in his account. Just as it is probable that it is the church and not the historical Jesus who is accused of blasphemy for calling a crucified one "the Son of the Blessed", so it is the later anti-Christian witnesses who were using a supposed saying of Jesus against his followers who are here characterized as false. Goguel thinks that a genuine saying of Jesus was much too radical for the early church. The anti-cultic implications of Jesus' action in the temple are confirmed by a consideration of the controversy story concerning Jesus' authority to do "this", Mk II:27-33.
