Hearing Mark's Gospel
During Advent, I will be featuring three guest posts, each by a different author and with a different theme and style. This week features an academic look at the Gospel of Mark. (If you read the post on the Revised Common Lectionary a few weeks ago, you may remember that we are just beginning Year B, which features the Gospel of Mark.)
This guest post is written by Dr. Elizabeth Struthers Malbon, Professor Emerita of Religion and Culture, Virginia Tech. Dr. Malbon, who is also my mother, is known nationally and internationally for her literary studies of the Gospel of Mark. She has authored five books, coedited five books, and written and edited numerous articles. Dr. Malbon is an active member of the Society of Biblical Literature and the Society for New Testament Study.
Grace and peace,
