Abstract

In this thesis I intend to investigate the three layers of tradition in the Christology of Mark: that of the historical Jesus, the Plaestinian community, and the Hellenistic Church. The result of this work will be a clearer picture of Mark’s contribution to the Christology of the Church. I propose that Mark constructed his gospel to bring out the role of Jesus as the Suffering Servant who was exalted through his crucifixion and resurrection.
