Gary Greenberg’s new book Proving Jesus’ Authority in Mark and John discussed by Professor James D. Tabor

Cambridge Scholars Publishing has recently published Proving Jesus’ Authority in Mark and John: Overlooked Evidence of a Synoptic Relationship by Gary Greenberg, and the book’s argument is the subject of a post by James D. Tabor, Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, at his blog.

Tabor writes that “Greenberg argues that John is in fact using Mark as a structural outline but providing alternative narratives that undermine Mark’s understanding of Jesus and his teachings”, and that he is “convinced, with Greenberg, that John likely knows Mark and is at times offering his own take on Mark’s presentation of Jesus, which he sees as supplementary rather than contradictory.” The post can be read in full here.
