Re: Where didn't Mark preserve the Secret motif ?

I read this comment by prof Bob Price: Wrede noted certain inconsistencies in Mark's presentation implying that, while he preserved the Secret motif largely intact, he no longer understood it. https://books.google.it/books?id=hD1RDwAAQBAJ&pg=PT116&lpg=PT116&dq=paul+and+hellenism+maccoby+robert+pric...

(3) 1:17 - ὁ Ἰησοῦς (or rather - ΟΙΣ n.s.)
(3) unique reading in Greek
Not unique, from what I gather, but very rare.
The Oxyrhynchus volume says that "ο Ιηϲουϲ is omitted also in Φ and 1194, see von Soden, and a further scatter of minuscules...."

Re: Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 5345.

So the variants (1) 1:7 + των (do you mean τοῦ?) before αὐτοῦ based on spacing No, των is correct. The whole phrase is τῶν ὑποδημάτων αὐτοῦ. The των is just the end of the word ὑποδημάτων, split across two lines. (2) 1:8 - ἐν before πνεύματι ἁγίῳ (changes "baptize in the holy spirit" to "baptize wi...

Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 5345.

Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 5345 Information Published at last! But the fragment, which contains parts of Mark 1.7-9 and 1.16-18, dates to century II or III, not to century I.

Re: 'First Century Mark' Now Dated to Second/Third Centuries
