In the final installment of our READING MARK project, the Gospel Renegades discuss Mark’s Passion narrative from the Garden of Gethsemane to the resurrection. With the big questions in mind and a close eye on the text, we explore major themes and offbeat details in episodes like the flight of the naked youth at the arrest, the hapless failures of the disciples, Jesus confronting Pilate — and not least the ever-baffling ending of Mark’s gospel with its empty tomb, frightened women, and the risen Jesus nowhere to be seen.

Next up: the Gospel of John! So stay tuned, and thanks for following the Gospel Renegades.
