Mark’s Gospel performed on youtube

As people in antiquity would have mostly heard the Gospels performed rather than reading them directly, Mark Goodacre has provided a service in gathering the best performances of Mark that are available on youtube in his recent post as well as in the comments section.  This is one way scholars might use media to get students excited about learning about the Gospels and, on that subject, one session at SBL St Andrews that I definitely do not want to miss is on Pedagogy and the Gospel of Mark.  Mark Goodacre was looking for suggestions about online resources about Mark’s Gospel if you know of any he may have missed here and the rest of the papers in the session look interesting too (I am also looking forward to the paper by Elizabeth Struthers Malbon as she is one of the top literary critics on Mark).

  1. A couple of years ago, I was privileged to see and hear biblical storytellerTracy Radosevic‘s epic telling of the Gospel of Mark in its entirety. She is a member of the Network of Biblical Storytellers, which has links to some videos on their website.

    Having been through a few workshops and tellings offered by Dr. Radosevic and other NBS folks, I’ve been persuaded both that a telling is a far richer experience than a reading, even a really good reading; and that performance criticism can give additional insight into biblical texts.
