Chapter Summary

For about a decade the author has been pressing the case that his early followers saw Jesus as a prophet. In "The Pre-Markan Gospel" the author notes that, while Mark himself saw Jesus as the Son of God, his Gospel contained a wealth of incidents in which Jesus behaved like Elijah or Elisha. The Elijah/Elisha-type stories finish at Mark 8: the Transfiguration story in Mark 9 may recall distantly the mountain visions of 4 Kgms 2 and 6, but the verbal echoes are with Moses. Jewish expectations were focused not so much on "one of the prophets", or Elijah, as on "the prophet" ( John 1:21).

Keywords: Elijah; Elisha; Jewish Christians; Moses; Pre-Markan Gospel
