Sinopsis de THE GOSPEL OF MARK AND THE ROMAN-JEWISH WAR OF 66-70 CE

This book interprets Marks gospel in light of the Roman-Jewish War of 66-70 CE. Locating the authorship of Marks gospel in rural Galilee or southern Syria after the fall of Jerusalem and the temple, and after Vespasians enthronement as the new emperor, Kimondo argues that Marks first hearers–people who lived through and had knowledge of the important events of the war–may have evaluated Marks story of Jesus as a contrast to Roman imperial values. He makes an intriguing case that Jesus proclamation as the Messiah in the villages of Caesarea Philippi set up a deliberate contrast between Jesuss teaching and Vespasians proclamation of himself as the worlds divine ruler. He suggests that Marks hearers may have interpreted Jesus liberative campaign in Galilee as a deliberate contrast to Vespasians destructive military campaigns in the area. Jesuss teachings about wealth, power, and status while on the way to Jerusalem may have been heard as contrasts to Roman imperial values, hence, the entire story of Jesus may have been interpreted an anti-imperial narrative. Carefully researched and clearly written, Kimondos book stands at the nexus of historiography, postcolonial theory, and rigorous textual analysis. Sober in its conclusions even as it is wide-ranging in its implications for the field, this book will be of deep interest to New Testament scholars as well as those seeking to learn from anti-imperial discourses of the past for the purposes of faithful resistance in the present. Highly recommended. –Robert Saler, Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis In my work with the Bible in local communities of the poor and marginalised there is an immediate resonance with almost any section of the Gospel of Mark. Kimondo offers us a compelling analysis of why this is the case, providing a detailed interpretation of Mark as good news for the economically oppressed in the context of war and empire. Marks Jesus offers an egalitarian alternative to the ruling elites of bot
