Chapter Summary

Luke 12:8-9 (par. Matt 1O:32-33) and Mark 8:38 form an undeniable cornerstone of any reconstruction of the early history of Christology. In these related passages Jesus speaks about the coming Son of Man in the third person singular without explicitly identifying himself with him. The discussion of these verses often entails the issue whether the words in question can be traced back, in one form or another, to the historical Jesus. Luke 12:9 can be shown to be independent of Mark 8:38.This chapter explores dependency of Luke's rewriting of Q 12:8-9 on Mark, and dependency of Mark 8:38 on Q 12:8-9. In order to assess the literary relationship between Mark 8:38 and Q 12:8-9 it is necessary to try to recover the common source (Q) of Luke 12:8-9 and Matt 10:32-33. The chapter compares Matt 10:32-33 and Luke 12:8-9.

Keywords: Christology; Jesus; Luke 12:8-9; Mark 8:38
