If you don’t follow along with us in the daily readings from Torah and the gospels (the “Daily D’var”) then you might enjoy this example of commentary which I send out daily to a list (right now about 150 people). Today’s commentary interests me in particular because it deals with the artistry of Mark, how his intertextuality (use of the innocent sufferer theme in Psalms) is done so seamlessly, so invisibly. Chapter 15 of Yeshua in Context (“Crucifixion Irony”) is all about how this presentation of Messiah’s death screams with irony. See today’s comments on Mark 15:16-24 here.
