Scholars have long sought the theological perspective that gives coherence to Mark's gospel. In Isaiah's New Exodus in Mark, Rikki Watts argues that Mark's primary concern is to present Jesus as the one who unexpectedly fulfills the hope of Isaiah's long-delayed "new exodus."ContentsPreface Table of Contents Abbreviations Introduction Ch. 1 Scholarship on the OT in Mark Ch. 2 History as Hermeneutic: Ideology and Community Self-Understanding Ch. 3 Mark's Introductory Citation Ch. 4 The Markan Prologue Ch. 5 The Significance of the Prologue for Mark's Literary Structure Ch. 6 Jesus as Yahweh-Warrior and Israel's NE Healer in Mark 1:16--8:21/26 Ch. 7 Isaiah's Promise ... and Malachi's Threat: Part 1: Judical Blinding Ch. 8 The Way of Yahweh's NE: Mark 8:21/26--10:45/11:1 Ch. 9 Isaiah's Promise ... and Malachi's Threat: Part 2: Arrival in Jerusalem Ch. 10 Conclusions Bibliography Index of Passages Index of Modern Authors Index of SubjectsReviews"Argues persuasively that Mark has been profoundly influenced by the book of Isaiah ... where remembrance of the Exodus from Egypt has been transformed into hope for a new Exodus."--Morna D. Hooker, University of Cambridge"The relationship of the New Testament writings to the Jewish scriptures is a perennial problem for students of early Christianity. Rikki Watts' comprehensive study of the possible links between the Gospel of Mark and the Book of Isaiah represents a significant addition to the ongoing debate."--Christopher Rowland, University of Oxford"This is a very important, groundbreaking study on the Old Testament background to Mark's presentation of Jesus. From here on, no one should try to read Mark's narrative with understanding without taking into consideration how much the theme of the New Exodus in Isaiah influenced his understanding of Jesus and of Jesus' announcement of the coming of God's rule. "--Gordon D. Fee, Regent College"An impressive example of biblical theology and of solid scholarship. Watts shows convincingly how Mark interprets Jewish tradition in light of the fulfillment of Isaianic prophecy."--Martin Hengel, University of Tubingen
