The article deals with the problem of Parusieverzögerung in the Synoptic Gospels. The most crucial verses are Mark 9:1 and 13:30. To begin with, the New Testament shows a calculated ambiguity in many of its statements about the future "when" and "how": What will be consummated first on the Last Day is displayed already now in different ways. These both aspects are intertwined. Therefore, it is not possible to say that Jesus was mistaken in his eschatological expectation. To be sure, Mark 9:1 refers to the coming of the Son of Man but the verse is tied also to the following transfiguration which anticipates the parousia. Similarly, Mark 13:30 refers to the end of the world, but that global catastrophe already has taken place in miniature through the destruction of the temple.

More about this publication?
  • The journal is concerned with early Christianity as a historical phenomenon. Thereby, Early Christianity aims to overcome certain limitations which have hindered the development of the discipline, including the concept of the "New Testament" itself. The journal, then, is taken to cover not only the first Christian century but also the second.

    This journal will not, however, give any special prominence to reception-history or to the second century. The total phenomenon called "early Christianity" comprises a kaleidoscopic range of individual phenomena, including communal structures, social norms, discursive practices, points of conflict, material remains, and much else – far more than just the production and reception of texts. This journal will strive to reflect this multiplicity of contexts, in the expectation of new light on our subject-matter from a variety of angles.
