The finishing of Mark’s Gospel is among the nice unsolved mysteries. although, curiosity within the Markan end isn't really a contemporary phenomenon on my own. reviews concerning the assorted attested endings date again to Eusebius’ Ad Marinum within the fourth century. Responding to the obvious discrepancy among the timing of the resurrection in Matthew and Mark, Eusebius notes one could remedy the trouble in a single of 2 methods: both forget about the passage at the foundation of the manuscript facts or harmonize the 2 passages. regrettably, Eusebius’ reviews are all too usually considered in the course of the lens of the fashionable text-critical recreation, and hence, his purpose has principally been missed.
This quantity argues that Eusebius’ double resolution will be learn as spotting the authority of either the Longer and the Abrupt conclusions to Mark’s Gospel. the answer represents his ecumenical synthesis of these authors who preceded him, the “faithful and pious” from whom the Scriptures were acquired. simply with this figuring out of the double answer may well we totally savor Eusebius’ twin reception, that is indicative of a special method of the issue—one that prioritizes the query of reception over authorship, and person who is cozy declaring a pluriform canon.
