Mark 13 and the Return of the Shepherd



Mark 13 and the Return of the Shepherd Paul T Sloan presents a detailed interpretation of Mark s Olivet Discourse in light of the Gospel s many allusions to the book of Zechariah, and argues that previous studies have rightly demonstrated the influence of Zechariah 9 14 on the Passion Narratives Sloan shows that this influence is not merely confined to Mark s description of Jesus final week, but also permeates much of his narrative informing the Gospel s presentation of Jesus royal identity, his action in the temple, the role of suffering in the bringing of God s kingdom, and the arrangement and interpretation of the Olivet Discourse.Sloan begins with an extensive review of scholarship on the presence of Zechariah in Mark before analyzing the reception of relevant texts from Zechariah in Second Temple literature He proceeds to a fresh examination of potential allusions to Zechariah throughout Mark, focusing especially on Mark s use of Zechariah 13 7 and 14 5 In addition to influencing significant themes in Mark s Gospel, Sloan argues that Zechariah provides a helpful framework by which to interpret Mark 13, offering a potential solution to a notorious crux interpretum, namely, why Jesus answers a question about the temple with reference to the coming of the son of man.
