About This Book
This book explores the development of a titular Christology within the narrative world of the Gospel of Mark. Preliminary attention is given to the historical background of various titles, but the primary focus is on the literary foreground. Broadhead analyses the distribution of various titles throughout the narrative, describes the associations established, and notes the level of confirmation offered. His major focus is on the development of each title within the larger literary strategy and the effect of this strategy upon the christological presentation. He concludes that such titles are not inherently christological, but become so within the literary world of the Gospel of Mark.
