Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

This is my diagram showing the relationship of Mark 16:9-20 with gLuke, gJohn and gMark, based on solid evidence:

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

Hi Ben, By the same standard, positing that Matthew's Great Commission is an interpolation is "unevidenced." You use (slender) internal evidence to make that argument, My evidence, I explained in my aforementioned web page, is not slender and there is nothing wrong about using internal evidence. I u...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

Hi Ben, Okay, I see now what you are saying. But for Matthew to lack any appearances at all, like his Marcan source, is different than adding appearances which are not in Galilee. If we look at Mk16:7 "But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see hi...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

Hi Ben, You did not answer my question. I asked how the author of the Longer Ending of Mark solved the problem of there being no Galilean appearance in Mark. Matthew has nothing to do with it. Initially gMatthew did not have the reappearance in Galilee, as I demonstrated on my web page indicated ear...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

How did your editor/author solve the problem of Mark 16.7 and 14.28? A Galilean prediction with no Galilean appearance. I already said the reappearance in Galilee in gMatthew is most likely an early 2nd century insertion. Without it, initially gMatthew had no fulfillment of prophecies of Jesus abou...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

Hi Ben, Exactly. I doubt that anybody deliberately wrote up an ending to Mark without the promised appearances in Galilee. It is possible, but I do not view it as probable. It is obvious to me the author of the long ending departed from gMark and followed gJohn in order to solve the problem caused b...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

Hi Ben, I suggest that it was done independently of Mark. It originally either stood pretty much on its own or as part of a different text: Mark 16.9 backtracks chronologically ("when he had arisen") to refer to the time of the resurrection, which would come in between 15.47 and 16.1. (Yet 16.9 uses...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

Hi Ben, My problem with this is that I am quite certain that the Longer Ending was not composed with the rest of Mark in mind; it was never originally intended as the ending to the text (according to various internal considerations). Therefore, the reconciliation is blunt, not fine: it is simply a m...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

To MrMacSon, John 21 has also been proposed as relating to the long end of G.Mark (eg, Evan Powell, “The Unfinished Gospel”, 1994) The miraculous fishing in John 21 might have been inspired by the one in Luke's gospel. However parts of the long ending is more obviously related to elements of John 20...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

Hi Ben, The author of the long ending seems to reconcile Mark with John as follows: - The women are afraid by what they experienced at the empty tomb and do not tell anyone about it (Mk 16:6, last verse before the long ending). - Later Mary Magdalene (implied: she returned to the empty tomb) is the ...
