Sample text

There are two topoi here that exhibit a close relation to biblical prophetic discourse: (1) fulfillment of time and (2) kingdom of God. When first approaching Mark 1:15, it would appear that the first two clauses present a Case rather than a Rule. But in apocalyptic discourse, assertions about time and the coming of a new age regularly are Rules emerging from the attributes and actions of God. This becomes evident when one sees the application of the Rule to a Case in Ezek 7:12–13: Rule: (12) The time has come, the day drawn near [when those who are righteous will be preserved by God, but those who are not righteous will have wrath upon them].

Result: The spirit of holiness shall be upon them. Case: (12) And Beliar shall be bound by him. And he shall grant to his children the authority to trample on wicked spirits. Result: (14) . . and all the saints shall be clothed in righteousness. This is apocalyptic reasoning that moves enthymematically from the actions of God as Rule through a special envoy of God’s attributes and actions as Case to the Result of special blessing on a group of righteous ones, which includes the ability to overpower demons.

Jud. 24:2. 20 Vernon K. 39 Apocalyptic discourse would feature Jesus being transported into another level of heaven40 or engaging in dialogue with the voice to receive answers about things that appeared in heaven. However, when Jesus is in the wilderness, Satan tests him. 41 While Mark 1:13 takes the form of descriptive discourse, discussion of Satan becomes argumentative in Mark 3:23–30. There will be further discussion of T. Levi 18 in the section below on exorcisms in Mark. After the appearance of potentially apocalyptic topoi in the descriptive discourse of Mark 1:9–13, two potentially apocalyptic topoi appear in argumentative discourse attributed to Jesus: (1) announcement that time is fulfilled (1:15); and (2) announcement that the kingdom of God is drawing near (or “has drawn” near) (1:15).
