By Paul Danove

The reviews of characterization distinguish ideals which are assumed for the viewers from ideals that the narration cultivates for the viewers, identifies the rhetorical relationships and association of cultivated ideals, and clarifies the contribution of every character’s portrayal to the final narrative improvement of Mark. The examine then considers the contribution of the characterization of the ladies on the tomb to the portrayal of Jesus’ disciples and narrative advancements. A concluding inquiry investigates the prospective functions of the reports of characterization for deciding upon the rhetorical exigency of the narration and for formulating statements of Mark’s proposed theology.
