Item Description...
Overview
In The Company Of Jesus tracks the way in which the characters other than Jesus are portrayed in the Gospel of Mark. Malbon employs a literary approach that reveals the contribution to the Gospel story made by the characters around Jesus - the twelve disciples, the women who Jesus encounters and those who follow him, the Jewish leaders, and characters who appear only once. After outlining four elements of narrative criticism - characters, settings, plot, and rhetoric - Malbon explores many of the characters that appear in the Gospel of Mark and shows how their interaction advances the narrative.

Publishers Description
This volume explores the way in which the characters other than Jesus are portrayed in the Gospel of Mark. The author employs a literary approach that reveals the contribution of these minor characters - the 12 disciples, Bartimaeus, Jairus and his daughter, the women who followed Jesus, and the Jewish leaders - to the Gospel story. After outlining the four elements of narrative criticism - characters, settings, plot, and rhetoric - the author discusses each of the characters that appear in Mark's Gospel, showing how they advance the narrative by their interaction.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
In the Company of Jesus: Characters in Mark's Gospel  Oct 24, 2007
Elizabeth Struthers Malbon's book, In the Company of Jesus; Characters in Mark's Gospel, is a collection of seven essays written by the author. The first chapter gives the reader a background in narrative criticism, which is the basis for the rest of the essays. Each of the essays takes a look at a different set of characters in the Gospel of Mark. They range from the women in the Gospel to the disciples. I found the book to be enjoyable, but I can see that a little instruction in narrative criticism would be helpful in reading this work. Overall I enjoyed this book, but I would recommend it for someone who has had some instruction in narrative criticism.
 
In the Company of Lesser-Known Characters  Dec 13, 2006
I was drawn to this book because it contains the author's "The Poor Widow in Mark and Her Poor Rich Readers," cited in more-recent commentaries on Mark 12. This chapter, one of the suthor's seven academic articles gathered to make up the present volume, expands the usual reading of the text and develops six different narrative contexts in which we can view it.

A creative, in-depth study of less-frequently-examined corners of the earliest Gospel, with an introductory chapter on narrative criticism, followed by chapters on "Fallible Followers," "Disciples/Crowds/Whoever," "Interpreting the Disciples in Mark, "Jewish Leaders in the Gospel of Mark," and "The Major Importance of Minor Characters in Mark."
