This important work represents a major methodological advance in the study of the Gospels. . . . The result is a significant reassessment of Mark’s Christology and a stunning, new interpretation of the secrecy motif.

David M. Rhoads, emeritus professor of New Testament, Lutheran School of Theology

Kingsbury provides a novel combination of a titular approach to Markan Christology and a literary critical reading of Mark’s Gospel. By refracting the major titles of majesty through the prism of Mark’s story woven around the plot of the secret of Jesus’ identity, Kingsbury produces a lucid, integrated spectrum of Mark’s Christology. Written in Kingsbury’s typically cogent, clear, interactive style, this work offers a greatly needed corrective for Mark’s Christology(ies) often seen as (intentionally or unintentionally) obtuse and incoherent.

Robert A. Guelich, emeritus professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
