    I don’t have enough space to adeuately summarize this book here so you can read my full review at Spoiled Milks 041719 I thought this book was fantastic I’ve wondered just how Mark 13 works and Sloan has answered many though not all of my uestions Mark 13 uses a lot of imagery from Zechariah 13 14 Sloan compares Mark 13 with Zechariah 13 14 because he believes Zechariah clears up an impasse that has confounded scholars for 150 years He believes that the allusions to Zechariah 13 and 14 serve as frames or bookends for the tribulation depicted in Mark 13 5 Jesus alludes to Zechariah 137 in Mark 838 and he alludes to Zechariah 145 in Mark 1427 Sloan's focus in chapter 4 There are multiple allusions to Zechariah throughout Mark’s Gospel and the Passion narrative Aside from ch 5 a review of scholarship on Mark 13 every chapter was excellent The best though was ch 6 where Sloan combs through each sectionparagraph of Mark 13 explaining the text and its interwoven connections to Zechariah 13 14 Jesus is the awaited but unexpected Davidic king 215 His actions as king do not match what the disciples or anyone else expected He claims to be Israel's king but his kingship entails pouring out his own blood of the covenant Zech 911 and being stricken by God Zech 137 The latter is not a repudiation of kingship but it is a redrawing or a new figuration of what being king entails 215Sloan shows incisively why Jesus elaborates on the persecution of the disciples the attack on Jerusalem and the parousia in one discourse in Mark 13 213 Sloan shows that having a keen eye a good knowledge of the languages and a healthy dose of creative thinking one can see the OT foundation in the NT If your interests lie in Mark you should consider picking up Sloan's book It's one that I am surely happy to have
