Show Summary Details


This chapter presents an essay on observations about the meanings of glory in verse 37 of chapter 10 of the book of Mark. It suggests that the discussion of the periscope on the request of James and John to sit in the ‘glory of Jesus’ usually centres on the enigmatic reference to baptism and the cup. It suggests that Mark's use of the word glory is associated with the future coming of the Son of Man, but in all mention of the word, Mark was reluctant to predicate glory of him directly. However, it Mark was reserved in attributing glory directly to the future Son of Man it is questionable why he allowed James and John to attribute it to Jesus in chapter 10 verse 37.
