Mark and John–Again!
by James Tabor
I have posted quite a few things lately on the relationship between the gospels of Mark and the gospel of John. I want to strongly recommend Paul Anderson’s recent piece with the fascinating title, “A Bioptic Hypothesis: A Theory of Influentiality Between the Johannine and Markan Gospels,” along with the links to the work of our SBL group on the historical value of the Gospel of John. You can read a summary of Anderson’s thoughts on this subject here.
