Although traditionally accepted by the church through the centuries, the longer ending of Mark's Gospel (16:9-20) has been relegated by modern scholarship to the status of a later appendage. The arguments for such a view are chiefly based upon the witness of the two earliest complete manuscripts of Mark, and upon matters of language and style. This work shows that these primary grounds of argumentation are inadequate. It demonstrates that the church fathers knew the Markan ending from the very earliest days, well over two centuries before the earliest extant manuscripts. The quantity of unique terms in the ending is also seen to fall within the parameters exhibited by undisputed Markan passages. Strong indications of Markan authorship are found in the presence of specific linguistic constructions, a range of literary devices, and the continuation of various themes prominent within the body of the Gospel. Furthermore, the writings of Luke show that the Gospel of Mark known to this author contained the ending. Rather than being a later addition, the evidence is interpreted in terms of a textual omission occurring at a later stage in transmission, probably in Egypt during the second century.

"When did you last read a new book in biblical studies that was not a collection of articles or a minimally revised doctoral thesis? A book moreover that was substantial, systematic and lucid? A book that restored your faith that there are still some real scholars out there? Yes, I thought so. Well, here is the exception that proves the rule and, given that it tackles probably the most important textual crux in the New Testament, one that has long been assumed to have been settled, it is well worth a careful read."
-Michael Tait, Reviews in Religion and Theology, 22:3, 2015

"Pastors, apologists, Bible students, and New Testament scholars will find the book's argument solid and convincing. The Original Ending of Mark will be proven as a faith-defending tool that must be utlilized in theological debates on the authenticity of Mark 16:9-20."
-Igal German, Theological Book Review, Vol. 27 No.1, 2016

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
