- It is a fact that the entire gospel of Mark is pure paulinism put in allegory.
- It is a fact that John and better the "Baptism of John" is totally alien to Paul and pure paulinism.
- It is a fact that somewhere in Acts (the learned reader knows what I refer to) a guy named Apollos, who knew only the "baptism of John", was paulinized by Paul himself. Now, even if it is not a fact but pure fiction, it reflects the historical conversion en masse of followers of the "Baptism of John" to paulinism.
I think this is a great finding.
John means "YHWH gives grace".
Jesus means "YHWH gives salvation".
"Mark" passed from exaltation of the grace to expectation of salvation.
From gnosis to apocalypticism.
You would call this judaization in action.
