Fourth Annual Dr. Jack Dean Kingsbury Lecture
“The Death of Jesus and its Aftermath in the Gospel According to Mark”
Annual lecture by Dr. James W. Voelz, the Dr. Jack Dean Kingsbury Professor of New Testament Theology
The death of Jesus is the place in the Gospel of Mark where our Lord’s mission reaches its climax. This is confirmed by Jesus’ final moments and by the aftermath of His atoning act, including the tearing of the veil of the temple and the confession of the centurion. These events provide a bookend, as it were, to Mark’s narrative, which corresponds to the beginning of Jesus’ mission in 1:10-11.
