Description: This innovative study makes a major contribution to the long scholarly discussion of the problematic geography of Mark's Gospel. Using both modern spatial theory and an exhaustive review of ancient evidence, Stewart demonstrates how Mark's spatial perceptions reflect Greek, Roman and Jewish understandings of human geography. He addresses Mark's editorial and compositional control over the geographic presentation of Jesus's ministry, ultimately arguing that in Mark, Jesus offers a unique spatial practice. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
