Kingsbury acts as an exemplary pedagogue in this step-by-step
exposition. This reviewer finds his overall argument
Gerard S. Sloyan
This important work represents a major
methodological advance in the study of the Gospels . . . The result
is a significant reassessment of Mark's Christology and a stunning,
new interpretation of the secrecy motif.
David M. Rhoads
Lutheran School of Theology
Kingsbury provides a novel combination of a titular
approach to Markan Christology and a literary critical reading of
Mark's Gospel. By refracting the major titles of majesty
through the prism of Mark's story woven around the plot of Jesus'
secret identity, Kingsbury produces a lucid, integrated spectrum of
Mark's Christology. Written in Kingsbury's typically cogent,
clear, interactive style, this work offers a greatly needed
corrective for Mark's Christology(ies) often seen as (intentionally
or unintentionally) obtuse and incoherent.
