Chapter Summary

Modern informed readers know the Gospel of Mark from critical Greek editions with text-critical and other notes in the margins. For more than a century attempts have been made to explain the origin of the gospel material and to interpret the space between the related events and the final inscripturation of the contents of the Gospel. Very few scholars have taken the production of the written Gospel seriously. This chapter discusses the importance of the unsolved problem of the production of the Gospel of Mark. It first pays attention to current views on the origin of the material. The idea is to illustrate the implications of the traditional focus on the origins of the Gospel. The chapter talks about the production of the Gospel from the perspective of intertextuality. It focuses on the implications of a totally different perception of the phenomena of text and textual relationships.

Keywords: Greek editions; intertextuality; production of the gospel of Mark; textual relationships
