Jesus’ Sea Voyages in the Gospel of Mark

In this article, I attempt to show that there is a pattern or structure to Jesus’ six sea journeys across the Sea of Galilee recorded in Mark’s Gospel. This pattern includes not just the geographical aspects of the journeys themselves, but also the way that Mark has recorded them with regard to events during the journeys, levels of detail provided and words and expressions used in describing the journeys.

I also attempt to show that Mark is accurate and consistent with regard to geographical details – an aspect of Mark that is sometimes challenged – and that this accuracy and consistency also extends to Mark’s account considered in relation to the corresponding accounts in the other Gospels – indeed that when considered together, the accounts “synergistically” provide further interesting details and perspectives.

I hope you will find the article interesting, and I look forward to all comments and corrections!
