This book is to study the New Testament from the insights of modern linguistics. Its principal concern, above all, is to examine how the Gospel of Mark procuded in oral-aural cultures may be illuminated by frame theory from cognitive linguistics, a linguistic theory which the meaning of a word, phrase, clause, sentence, paragraph, and a thematic unit can only be properly understood against the background of a particular body of knowledge and assumptions. The reason this theory is particularly useful for understanding Mark's ancient text is because as an oral-aural narrative it heavily relies on human memory (cognitive) resources; and so the cognitive theory leads us into a better understanding of ways in which the text is communicated in terms of cognitive processing.
